Synopsis: RockportÆs Architecture in Detail series examines the role of details in contemporary architecture through the work of many emerging and established practitioners whose projects speak sensitively and energetically on a small scale.
In this edition, Spaces, acclaimed photographer Paul Warchol shows off these details in his lavish, full-color photographs, which makes turning these pages a pleasure for even the casual browser.
The projects are often beautiful telltales of a designerÆs thoughts, scaled to our eyes, made physical to the touch of our hands. These crafted moments remind us that architecture can be a subtle and powerful force -- played out in some cases by evoking historical motifs, in others by radical experimentation. But more than a simple catalogue of ideas, this book ultimately shows these details as individual expressions of discovery, gestures of delight or severity, and of beauty and clarity. They are meaningful indications of the architectÆs presence -- more than all else, willful signs that the true craft of design is alive and well.
About the Author: Oscar Riera Ojeda is an editor and designer. He is the creator of many architectural books including the Single Building series, Ten Houses series, Contemporary World Architects series, and Architecture in Detail.
