This is a compilation of the full year’s information, including: the “Discussion” section, where well-known architects and critics as well as specialist authors and architectural historians articulate their views; the “Documentation” section containing an analysis of selected projects, in which buildings from around the world are covered in depth; and the “Technology” section where the specific theme of each issue of the magazine is treated in greater depth. Along with these are illustrations of the high standards that Detail is known for, where all plan drawings are true to scale and have been approved by the architects, planners and engineers responsible for the original design.
This annual sourcebook is a beautiful record, not only of the year’s Detail publication, but of some of the best, and most innovative contemporary architecture
*Gain all of the information from the 2003 editions of Detail magazine in one publication
*Provides a key sourcebook to leading contemporary design
*Includes the opinions and work of leading architects and designers as well as crucial technical detail
“Twenty-four case-studies and more than 100 photographs are included…it should prove to be a key source for leading contemporary design.”
– Building Design
“Most appropriate for general readers are the discussion articles and the building projects in the documentation section. More appropriate for professionals are the technology articles, which go into a fair amount of detail about materials, processes, and techniques. There is excellent photography throughout.”
“This book contains a selection of the most significant projects from the 10 issues, published in 2003 of the German architectural publication Detail. The focus, as the name suggests, is on the construction details of the projects, which are illuminated through a brief text and an extensive use of sections and plans. In an age when technical innovation is increasingly driving built form, this very specifically focused perspective is intriguing.”
