Edward Ford's forty years of practicing and teaching architecture have focused on one area: the architectural detail. Yet, despite two hugely influential books (The Details of Modern Architecture, volumes 1 and 2), numerous articles, and lectures given from Vancouver to Vienna, there is one question Ford has, remarkably, never answered: 'What is a detail?' Ford walks the reader through five widely accepted (and wildly different) definitions of detail, in an attempt to find, for once and for all, the quintessential definition of detail in architecture. After shuffling through the history of architecture, he finally reaches a conclusion, and his answer may surprise you. The architectural detail is Ford's life's work, and this may be his most important book to date.
