Conceptual question regarding the peculiar syntax of initializing Request objects.

Why do we initialize our Request object using Request r= new Request.Build(); I'm not sure what exactly Build() does [maybe returns a Request object?], but shouldn't it still be Request r = new Request().Build(); ? Or is this some syntax due to method chaining that I'm unaware of?
