Written by Jeffrey Brown AIA, TILTWALLISM is designed to be an introductory resource to architects and an inspiration to contractors, developers and structural consultants who have encountered the technology of Tilt Wall construction. The vast amount of trade and technical information available on the subject is interpreted in a formal treatment for the first time on a subject at the forefront of the architectural role in an era of lowered construction costs.

Brown provides a full synthetic treatment of Tilt Wall construction by laying out the design opportunities in engaging in the architectural exploration of a low technology / low cost form of construction. He explains its history, methodology, and relationship to current architectural approaches to meaning. Brown writes in a balanced style targeted at both architects and academics that will also be accessible to non-architects and allied professionals. The title is richly illustrated in an effort to be useful to the many ancillary professions such as contractors, developers, and real estate brokers who are driving this increasingly prevalent approach to investment architecture.
