What separates good architecture from great architecture? The difference lies in the details. The way an architect chooses to treat architectural detailinga "screens and walls, doors and windows, roofs, bridges, and stairsa "can transform the merely ordinary into the extraordinary. Detail in Process, the second volume in the new AsBuilt series, features twenty-five awe-inspiring projects characterized by an unusual synthesis of aesthetics and materials: the sunshade at Morphosisa (TM)s Student Recreation Center in Cincinnati; the embossed and perforated copper skin of Herzog & de Meurona (TM)s de Young Museum in San Francisco; the handrails at MirA3 Rivera Architectsa (TM), Lake Austin Footbridge in Austin; the stairs at Heatherwick Studiosa (TM), Longchamps Store in New York City; plus twenty more. Editors Christine Killory and RenA(c) Davids have collected the best work of the past two years including new buildings by some of todaya (TM)s most daring and detail-obsessed architects, including Norman Foster, James Carpenter, John Ronan, Renzo Piano, Marmol Radziner, Tadao Ando, Steven Holl, Jean Nouvel, David Chipperfield, and SANAA. Comprehensively documented, Detail in Process includes the plans, details, and large-scale sections needed to appreciate the innovative ways these architects have responded to complicated design problems.
