Detail in Contemporary Residential Architecture 2, by David Phillips and Megumi Tamashita and published by Laurence King in October 2014 follows on from the success of the first book in the series, and contains entirely new projects.
Featuring the work of renowned architects from around the world, this book presents 50 of the most recently completed and influential house designs. It also analyses both the technical and the aesthetic importance of details in modern residential architecture. The projects are presented in clear and concise layouts over four pages. All of the drawings are styled consistently and presented at standard architectural scales to allow for easy comparison.
Each project is presented with colour photographs, site plans and sections and elevations, as well as numerous construction details. There is also descriptive text, detailed captions and in-depth information for each project. A bonus CD contains drawings from the book, in both EPS and DWG (generic CAD) formats.
