The Art of Building Book

Pre-order your copy of The Art of Building book ahead of its publication.


Limited to just 200 individually-numbered copies, this stunning collection of photographs

submitted to the CIOB’s annual Art of Building competition is a must-have for anyone

who is passionate about the built world and how humanity and nature interact with it.

This book features nearly 100 photographs, drawn not only from successful competition

finalists, but also from entrants whose work nonetheless merits attention.


The images, both colour and monochrome, feature the built environment in nearly

40 countries, highlighting not only contemporary construction and architecture, but also

abandoned buildings and historic sites, the commercial and the divine. From labourers

on scaffolding in India passing materials to each other, to mirrored surfaces creating

reflections of buildings folding in on themselves, this selection invites the viewer

to reflect on what they see.


Each spread, printed on high-grade, gloss Garda paper from Italy, reveals two

photographs, juxtaposed either sympathetically or in contrast: some celebrate the

built world, others challenge its impact.
