A study of detail in contemporary world architecture in photographs and drawings.

1000 Architectural Details is a reference catalog to buildings' structural features. In photography and drawings (floors, elevations, cross-sections, axonometrics and sketches), the authors discuss how function meets form to create outstanding architecture and design. The material has been selected for its capacity to inspire and propose innovative ideas on how to approach the design or construction of different parts of a project.

Divided into 15 thematic chapters, the details are numbered from one to a thousand, and each is illustrated with a close-up photograph or drawing and explained in a concise caption. The authors begin with primary structural elements, such as columns and beams, and a section on materials and their properties covers the finishings commonly used, such as concrete and steel.


Alex Sanchez Vidiella is an expert in art history and contemporary art. He has written and edited many books on architecture and design, including The Atlas of Contemporary Architecture.
