Facades are the first feature one notices in a building. They determine its distinctive appearance, communicate its purpose - and sometimes become subjects of intense debate. The facade is an expression of individuality, imparting a unique face on each building. External surfaces have a high stake in their aesthetic as well as functional value, and are perceived and designed as integral, vital components of all structures.

This book aims to demonstrate the variety of European facade design. Presenting an array of facades, impressive photographs reveal the diversity of the European metropolis, transporting the reader from St. Petersburg to London, Rome and Barcelona and beyond.
