In collaboration with Graph Commons, Who Builds Your Architecture? maps connections between building projects in four cities: Chicago, New York, Istanbul, and Doha. The database uses the design and construction of building facades to trace diverse relationships between architects, clients, consultants, and construction companies at a global scale.From our on-going research, WBYA? has excerpted case studies in four cities—Chicago, New York City, Istanbul, and Doha—to reveal complex local and global networks of the architecture and construction process, in particular highlighting connections between architects and the construction workers who build their architecture.
