Quick Overview

Now available | 2nd edition, revised and expanded


In recent years, facades have become more important in architectural practice and in public perception. As well as functioning as a protective shell and visible 'face' and supplying heat and electricity, a building's exterior interacts directly with the surrounding public space.

This revised and expanded new edition of the Facade Construction Manual offers readers technical and design planning fundamentals in a compact reference work. A section describing a comprehensive selection of built structures shows general and unique, tried and tested, and innovative approaches to facade planning – down to the last detail.

- Over 100 examples of built structures
- Material-specific approaches for use in planning facades
- Technical planning fundamentals
- Special issues involving modern facade concepts
- More than 250 detailed drawings and sketches and around 500 illustrations
