Architectural highlights from DETAIL

The facade serves as the building's public face, allowing rapid assessment of its architecture. Yet, how does a building's envelope really make a difference in the quality 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. All contributions share a sophisticated consideration of what goes on behind the facade, in short: good architecture offering abundant inspiration and constructive solutions for the reader's own work.
