Carles Broto & Josep Ma Minguet, 2002 - Architecture - 179 pages
Facades, much more than providing a necessary skin on a structure, define the character of the architecture. This volume is an exhaustive study on the treatment of facades, from the conception of the design to the final execution of the project. Each chapter focuses on a particular material, with the wide range of design possibilities offered by each and the construction details. For the simple aesthetic enjoyment of the fine architectural works collected here, or for a more thorough understanding of the technical details behind their design, this volume is an indispensable reference for layman and professional alike.
