Based on the rubric “A Second Look”, part of DETAIL’s 50th anniversary, the publication presents a new look at selected structures from the past five decades. This includes material from previous publications combined with current information, with a critical eye cast on current trends in comparison to their forerunners. What has become of the developments that these earlier structures began? What conclusions can be drawn about the original designs? The book not only presents buildings that have changed greatly over time, but also buildings whose designs have stood the test of time – designs that have lost none of their relevance and innovation over years of use.
