Description

The facade serves as the building's public face, allowing rapid assessment of its architecture. Best of DETAIL: Facades explores this topic with theoretical discussions and an in-depth look at a range of selected projects, which, besides showcasing suitable materials and designs, give the reader a detailed look behind the scenes. It turns out that quality architecture can only result from a coherency between the facade, structure, internal organisation and building services – design elements that interact directly with each other. This presents the architect with enormous challenges, particularly as the unity between the exterior and interior is no longer a given, as today's range of materials and design possibilities offer nearly limitless creativity. The book gathers highlights on this issue from various DETAIL publications, offering abundant inspiration and constructive solutions for the reader's own work.
