Focused on the design process for architects and related professionals, this is a guide to the design and execution of sophisticated exterior building enclosures for a number of commercial building types and in a variety of building materials. Written by the technical director of the San Francisco office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), an architecture firm that is highly esteemed for its design quality, the book has a distinct focus on the design process by delineating the participants (architects, engineers, consultants) and their roles and responsibilities through collaboration, and tracking the design process through construction. In-depth case studies of projects of various scales, types, and climate conditions will illustrate the successful implementation of wall enclosure solutions in masonry, stone, concrete, glass, metals, and wood.
