In recent years, facades have become more important in architectural practice and in public perception. As well as functioning as a protective shell and visible 'face' and supplying heat and electricity, a building's exterior interacts directly with the surrounding public space. This revised and expanded new edition of the Facade Construction Manual offers readers technical and design planning fundamentals in a compact reference work. A section describing a comprehensive selection of built structures shows general and unique, tried and tested, and innovative approaches to facade planning - down to the last detail.
