These two volumes, published by Rockport Press, explore small and sustainable environments. Several key aspects inform the designs of the book: a primacy of image over effect; clear dividers for each typology explored; and a clear desaturated color palette allows the projects colors to dominate. In addition, cinematic graphics wrap around the dust sleeve of each book–a first for the publisher.
"The Contemporary Design Details series takes a highly visual look at architectural design details that are more often dealt with in a technical textbook format. The books take readers on a tour of the best details designed by great architects around the world. The series provides a powerful presentation of the most challenging and evolving architectural and design categories."
