Edition Detail


Book ID: 94152

DETAIL has been reporting on high-quality architecture from around the world, questioning designs and getting below the surface for the past 50 years. DETAIL does not simply parade ambitious architecture in the form of glossy photos, but instead examines backgrounds under the leitmotif of Òaesthetics and constructionÓ, reveals constructional contexts and relationships.

To celebrate this anniversary, the editors have for the first time brought together a number of articles and case studies from the past two decades in one publication. Twenty years Ð a period in which the popularity and influence of the journal have grown continuously, the concept and presentation have developed steadily, and which, in 1997Ð98, saw the wary changeover from drawings done by hand to drawings done by computer.

Subdivided into sections with the titles Discussion, Reports, Documentation, Technology, Typology and Process, this anniversary edition depicts not only the progress of the journal itself, but also paints a kaleidoscopic picture of the architecture of the last 20 years, its moods, trends and constructional idiosyncrasies. Not surprisingly, it makes a significant contribution to the architecture debate. Just like the ÒnormalÓ issues, this special edition contains plenty of material to inspire and assist readers in their daily work.
