Modern Construction Envelopes deals with the facade and roof as an integral part of the building, allowing a holistic approach to the design of the building envelope and providing greater design freedom.

The book is aimed at readers who want to extend their knowledge of wall and roof construction beyond the information given in the Modern Construction Handbook, using state-of-the-art construction principles of modern facade and roof systems.

The third edition of this classic has been fully brought up to date; it contains new examples in all chapters and presents the projects in revised, new 3D drawings and in 25 AR applications that can be accessed free of charge via smartphone and tablet.
