Most architects today are savvy to the power of digital renderings and media, but few can present drawings in a manner that can be understood by those working outside the project. These drawings reveal what images and photographs cannot: how some of the world’s most challenging buildings have been constructed.
– From double-curvature shapes to geometrically demanding structures, twenty projects by the world’s most exciting practices are shown in exacting detail through specially created plans, sections and elevations.
– Includes detailed plans of such buildings as Rem Koolhaas’s Casa de Musica in Porto, Norman Foster’s Chesa Futura apartments in St Moritz and UN Studio’sVilla NM in upstate NewYork.
– The information has been culled and created in close collaboration with the architects, with a view to highlighting each building’s particular innovations.
