About this product
- DescriptionIn the near future, an exact replica of the world's tallest tower, Dubai's Burj al Khalifi, is being built on New Zealand's West Coast. It's an exercise in ecomic stimulation and national confidence-building after a run of natural and financial disasters. Catherine is the engineer in charge of making sure it all works. She feels there is something wrong in the plans. Or is there something wrong in her? I'm Working on a Building follows Catherine from the top of the tower to a geodesic dome in a park in London; from the Grand Lisboa in Macau to student accommodation in Wellington; from a South Auckland theme park to the Pompidou Centre; to reveal the way chance events can undo the best efforts of human beings to plan and build their lives and worlds.
