During the last few decades, the development of facade design technologies, prompted by these and other drivers, has progressed dramatically. Formal Aesthetic of Architecture Facade III captures not only the excitement of these advances but the confidence of referencing time-tested principles as well. Continuing explorations initiated in previous volumes, this book showcases the global panorama and amazing richness of facade solutions by many of today's preeminent designers.
The architect of each project celebrated in this volume might share a similar narrative about how and why their facades were realized. These facades convey the stories of the buildings they wrap. They represent the architectural languages of our time and the design profession's contribution to the creation of meaning, place and human experience.
