JA 110 is a special issue devoted to building sites. Building sites are places where buildings spring up, where architectural ideas assume physical forms. In this issue, we used building sites as points of departure to examine the processes of trial and error with which architects engage to realize their buildings.

While the inner-workings of a building are usually hidden upon its completion, they undoubtedly offer something revealing while construction is underway. If one pays close attention to what transpires on site, one may observe the moment when an architect’s ideas and consciousness about making things are sublimated into the building and its spaces. This issue includes site photos from, and comments on, 17 recent buildings as well as buildings completed during the 1950s-1980s.
