What separates good architecture from great architecture? The difference lies in the details. The way an architect chooses to treat architectural detailing screens and walls, doors and windows, roofs, bridges, and stairs can transform the merely ordinary into the extraordinary. Detail in Process, the second volume in the new AsBuilt series, features twenty-five awe-inspiring projects characterized by an unusual synthesis of aesthetics and materials: the sunshade at Morphosis's Student Recreation Center in Cincinnati; the embossed and perforated copper skin of Herzog & de Meuron's de Young Museum in San Francisco; the handrails at Mir Rivera Architects', Lake Austin Footbridge in Austin; the stairs at Heatherwick Studio's, Longchamp Store in New York City; plus twenty more.
