In these times of an expanding technology as a means of creating architectural form, there are surprisingly few books which seek to explore the relationship between the overall intention of a project and the means of achieving it. In this sequel to the authors' highly-acclaimed volume, The Building Envelope, details of examples of good modern buildings are examined and analysed on a comparative basis. The buildings selected for these technical studies were chosen for their innovative use of materials and detailing. They represent the most recent work of leading international architects and will undoubtedly become a major source of inspiration for architects and engineers. The text is well supported by photographs and axonometric drawings which provide an essential three-dimensional study of the assembly of connections.
