Detail in Contemporary Timber Architecture by Virginia McLeod provides analysis of both the technical and the aesthetic importance of details in modern timber architecture. Featuring the work of internationally renowned architects, this book presents 50 of the most recent and influential designs for residential and commercial timber architecture. The presented architectural practices include e.g. Lassila Hirvilammi Architects (currently OOPEAA), Sanaksenaho Architects, Alison Brooks Architects, Kengo Kuma, Sauerbruch Hutton, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Forma 6, and Allies and Morrison.
The projects are presented with high-quality, professional colour photos and scale drawings such as site plans, sections and elevations and construction details. There is also an introductory text about the architectural principles of the project. The book is accompanied with a CD-ROM which contains all the drawings as printed in the book in both EPS and DWG formats.
The copy in stock is in great condition, as good as new. The performance of the CD-ROM has not been tested.
