The AsBuilt series is dedicated to presenting recent examples of formal and material innovation in architecture through detail and technical drawings, diagrams, photographs, and work-in-progress material, including fabrication and assembly. Details, Technology, and Form, the third volume in the series, explores the genesis of twenty-five projects built in the United States and Canada, many notable for their multi-disciplinary design process. Editors Christine Killory and René Davids have selected buildings which have contributed to the ongoing evolution of architecture as a synthesis of art, engineering, and craft. From designs inspired by responses to environmental and energy concerns to re-interpretations of regional precedents or transformations of pre-fabricated building systems, all are testaments to the range and reach of contemporary architectural technology.
