There are a dizzying array of new tools and methods available to today's architects. From high-powered computer programs to state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and complex building materials, every new technology challenges architects to reconcile it with a building's design and detailing. Details, Technology, and Form, the third volume in the ongoing AsBuilt series, features twenty-five technologically awe-inspiring projects built in the past three years. Each project is
explored in detail through technical drawings, diagrams, and full-color photographs of the finished building, as well as work-in-progress material that illustrates fabrication and assembly. U.S. and Canadian projects range from an office building featuring a one-hundred-foot cantilever on its upper level supported by sixteen-foot-deep trusses to a house designed to float in the event of flooding.
Architects featured include el dorado Inc., Morphosis Architects, MOS, Polshek Partnership Architects, Renzo Piano Building Workshop, SOM, Toshiko Mori, Weiss/Manfredi, and Zaha Hadid Architects.
