Facade design is different from interior design. Apart from serving as an expression of the architect's creative mind, a facade must also be robust enough to withstand wind, rain, sunlight and vibration. Few universities teach the art of the facade, and architects must learn their trade by experience and instinct. The Art of Facades provides a multifaceted look at the anatomy of the modern facade using text, photography, and three-dimensional and CAD renderings. Readers will come away with a new appreciation of this most vital and public of architectural features - and the ability to understand the fascinating story behind 'the face of the house'.
