Built Environment

Our titles on the Built Environment at Cambridge Scholars Publishing cover two complimentary areas of academic research; the design, history, and theory of architecture and architectural practice, and the methods and practicalities of building and construction work. The collection will therefore be of interest to students and researchers in the humanities and social sciences, as well as architectural and construction professionals in different areas.
