About this title

Synopsis:

For all of architecture's apparent grandness of scale, it is in the details that the architectural idea is rendered. The Architectural Detail gives an overview of architectural detailing by a galaxy of prominent Dutch architectural firms of the moment, exploring the relationship between detail and context. What is at issue here is not the purely constructional side of details--say wind- or water-proofing--but their architectural potential. These are strategic details, designed and made the way they are because the concept demands it--in the best cases the whole concept can be read in any of the details. How these details were arrived at--the detail design process--is illustrated through texts, drawings, and photographs. Author and architectural scholar Ed Melet devotes chapters to the "detail philosophy" of such architectural stars as OMA/Rem Koolhaas, Koen van Velsen, Neutelings Riedijk, MVRDV, Ben van Berkel (UN Studio), Benthem Crouwel, and CEPEZED.
