The Taj Mahal stands on the banks of the river Yamuna in India. This legendary construction of white marble took 17 years to build, using a labour force of over 22,000 workers. Over 1000 elephants were used to bring the materials to the construction site. Its four sides are constructed to be perfectly identical, an outside observer has trouble discerning from which direction they are looking at the monument.

All of this was done on the order of the Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. According to legend, once the construction was accomplished, the Emperor ordered all of the workers hands to be chopped off so that something so grand could never be built again. Though no evidence that this is anything other than a myth exists, few can doubt the grandeur of Shah’s monument.

Meanwhile, the building of everything changes, as new methods, tools and materials become available.

Construction isn’t just about the physical building, but about the matters that surround it.
