Book Description

2 April 2004 1405107545 978-1405107549 1
∗ Why are buildings detailed the way they are? ∗ Why do architects and engineers seem to come to the same kind of solutions to their detailing problems? ∗ Are we satisfied with such a situation? With environmental concerns so high on designers′ agendas, the answer to this third question has to be ′no′. Collectively architects, engineers and specifiers need to revisit how they detail the built environment, and address the most important and potentially difficult area of the joint between materials and components. In Principles of Architectural Detailing the authors question the way in which buildings are detailed and in particular challenge familiar joint solutions. They offer practical guidance and a number of tools to help the student of architectural detailing in the decision–making process. The emphasis throughout is on using knowledge of construction in a creative and productive way to contribute towards a built environment that enhances our well–being and which is also sustainable.

More About the Author

I am an architect and my experience of working in practice eventually took me down a research route, which resulted in a PhD and then a full time position in the university sector. I try to retain this practical knowledge in my writing. My books are written for students studying a wide range of built environment programmes and span two inter-related areas; architectural (design) management and architectural (construction) technology. Some of my books have resulted from research projects, some from the frustration of not being able to find anything suitable for my students to read, and some from daring to think 'What if ..?'

Why are buildings detailed the way they are? Why do architects and engineers seem to come to the same kind of solutions to their detailing problems? Are we satisfied with such a situation? With environmental concerns so high on designers’ agendas, the answer to this third question has to be ‘no’.

In Principles of Architectural Detailing the authors question the way in which buildings are detailed and in particular challenge familiar joint solutions. They offer practical guidance and a number of tools to help the student of architectural detailing in the decision–making process.
