Starting with books entitled Materials and Elements, the Architecture in Detail series examines the role of details in contemporary architecture through the work of many emerging and established practitioners whose projects speak sensitively and energetically at the small scale. Elements, the second of two volumes in this series, presents a collection of new projects in which the designer's ideas are evident in the minor moments of a space, such as the curve of a handrail, the profile of a cabinet, the form and texture of a wall. The images feature a range of elements - from columns and staircases to doors and windows - all used to shape a broad variety of residential, commercial, and institutional environments. Each project is featured with photographs, sections, and construction details.

The architects presented in this volume include Architecture Research Office, Steven Holl Architects, Krueck & Sexton Architects, Maya Lin Studio, Machado and Silvetti Associates, OMA/Rem Koolhaas and more.
