Five Houses, Ten Details

Автор: Edward R. Ford

Короткое описание книги

Edward Ford's forty years of practicing and teaching architecture have focused on one area: the architectural detail.

Yet, despite two hugely influential books (The Details of Modern Architecture, volumes 1 and 2), numerous articles, and lectures given from Vancouver to Vienna, there are two questions Ford has, remarkably, never answered: &quote;What is a detail?&quote; and more importantly, &quote;What is a good detail?&quote; Ford is an architect as well as a writer, so it is not surprising that rather than answering these questions in a third book, he spent six years on the design and construction of a house.

Building it was not an exercise in the application of ideas about detail; it was, rather, a mechanism for answering those two simple questions.
