Description

The third edition of this highly successful book has been graphically redesigned as well as completely revised and expanded, with 220 new articles. It brings together facade solutions and ideas that are remarkable from various perspectives – city planning, architecture, technology, functionality. These qualities are attested by countless international structures and innovative plans by celebrated architects, which – organised on the basis of building typology – yield an overview of the technical possibilities of modern building envelopes: selected buildings by Albert Speer & Partner, WS Atkins & Partners, Toyo Ito, Murphy/Jahn, Riepel + Riepel, Richard Meier & Partners, Daniel Libeskind, Ingenhoven Overdiek, Gehry Partners, Yaser Darwish, BRT Architekten, Foster and Partners, Pysall_Ruge, Zaha Hadid, Ricardo Bofill, KSP Engel und Zimmermann, and FX Fowle.
