"Modern Construction Envelopes" is based on the two books by Andrew Watts "Modern Construction Roofs" and "Modern Construction Facades". Both volumes have been gathered into one single volume and unified in terms of content, which permits the consideration of facades and roofs as envelopes.

Using current examples of renowned architects, Andrew Watts presents the constructive and material related details. This book presents easy-to-understand text, photos, and standardized detail drawings as well as 3D representations of the components. By means of this information, the partly complex structure of modern envelopes can easily be understood and used for one's own needs.

The final part of this book deals with the "Future" focusing on digitally controlled construction parts and upcoming application solutions for material and technology.
