Laurence King / Chronicle, 11/01/2015. Item #25761 From the Publisher From Builders: 225 pages, hardcover with CD!
Detail in Contemporary Residential Architecture 2 follows on from the
success of the first book in the series, and contains all new projects.
Featuring the work of renowned architects from around the world, this book
presents 50 of the most recently completed and influential designs, along
with analysis of both the technical and the aesthetic importance of details in
modern residential architecture. The projects are presented in clear and concise
layouts over four pages. All of the drawings are styled consistently and
presented at standard architectural scales to allow for easy comparison. Each
project is presented with color photographs, site plans, and sections and
elevations, as well as numerous construction details. There is also descriptive
text, detailed captions and in-depth information for each project. A bonus CD
contains drawings from the book, in both .eps and .dwg (generic CAD) formats.
We are surprised to find these extraordinary details, from some of the most
famous architecture groups, shared in this fashion. For practicing architects as
well as students of design and builders as well. Engrossing!
