Construction Zone

Follow along in the excitement as a building is constructed and built. Watch as it grows from architectural drawings to full size. The photographs introduce the reader to the women, men and machines that tell the story of a how a building is built from a hole in the ground all the way until it is fully occupied. The sweeping glass, waves of metal, and angled layers of brick defy the conventions of traditional architecture and challenge the carpenters, welders, plumbers and engineers that designed and built it. This is the story of construction; craftsmanship and vision as they come together to build a building that many thought couldn’t be built. This story text for young readers is written by Cheryl Willis Hudson.
