The Art of the Facade shows you in hundreds of color illustrations, diagrams, and photographs what it is that makes an artful facade, so that you are equipped to design beautiful, meaningful buildings. Author Randall Korman discusses proportional systems, the language of composition, how to use precedents, the importance of context, the role of structure, and much more. This nontechnical approach will ground you in the basics of how architecture expresses meaning by looking at both historic and contemporary buildings.
