A handbook for students and architects, featuring 17 projects extensively documented, with special focus on detail, including drawings, floor plans and photos.
In architecture, the detail seldom gets the attention it deserves. Connections are often unsystematic junctions of materials that are hidden from view by additional devices. The architects of cepezed, however, consider the detail an essential part of every design and therefore detailing as an integral part of the design process. Indeed clear, well-considered and visually attractive details are a crucial characteristic of cepezed’s ingenious architecture, which is surprisingly natural and human.
In Detail presents unique details in an extensive selection of cepezed projects and discusses their place and significance within the total design. Using informative drawings and photos it offers detail solutions at various levels of scale. The result is a handbook for students and fellow architects, featuring directly applicable solutions and ideas for the effective use of detail as an essential instrument of architectural design.
