1000 Architectural Details is a reference catalogue to buildings' structural features. In photography and drawings (floors, elevations, cross-sections, axonometrics and sketches), the authors discuss how function meets form to create outstanding architecture and design. The material has been selected for its capacity to inspire and propose innovative ideas on how to approach the design or construction of different parts of a project. Divided into 15 thematic chapters, the details are numbered from one to 1,000, and each is illustrated with a close-up photograph or drawing and explained in a concise caption. The authors begin with primary structural elements, such as columns and beams, and a section on materials and their properties covers the finishings commonly used, such as concrete and steel. The authors also discuss essential installed elements, such as facades, roofs and insulation, as well as the many interior and exterior features that, while functional, allow the most latitude in decoration. These can include floors, lighting, color, storage, doors and landscaping. 'Green building' is covered in chapters on sustainable materials, recycling and prefabricated materials. This is a fascinating volume packed with comprehensive illustrations and the most current expert information. Professionals, do-it-yourselfers and anyone with an interest in design will find it eminently practical.
