Detailing is the articulation of the structure and construction. Principles are explained in brief and backed by extensive study of the detailing done by maestros to understand how to design details. The discussion includes reviews of recent built works that extract underlying principles that can be the basis for new patterns or the alteration and addition to existing patterns. In guiding a design from idea to reality, architects design a set of details that show how a structure will be put together. The aesthetics are only a small fraction of good design and that stability and functionality require a deep understanding of how elements come together. Art of Detailing will help bring the elements together with a well fleshed-out design that communicates accurately at all levels of the construction process.
