<ul><br><li>Why are buildings detailed the way they are? <br><li>Why do architects and engineers seem to come to the same kind of solutions to their detailing problems? <br><li>Are we satisfied with such a situation?</li></ul><br><p><br><p>With environmental concerns so high on designers&#8217; agendas, the answer to this third question has to be &#8216;no&#8217;. 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. <br><p><br><p>In <i>Principles of Architectural Detailing</i> 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.
