Architectural detailing makes a building unique and an architect outstanding. This book provides analysis of both the technical and the aesthetic importance of details in the development of contemporary domestic architecture, providing a study of the emerging trends in detailing in recent years.

Featuring many of the world's most highly acclaimed architects, the book presents over 50 recently completed houses, organized into six chapters defined by the key construction material: concrete, glass, masonry, steel, timber and alternative materials. For each house there are colour photographs, plans of every floor, sections and elevations, and numerous construction details.

The book also features in-depth information for each project, including the size, the client, the architectural project team, main consultants, and contractors. With CD-ROM.
