About this book

Introduction

“Modern Construction Envelopes” is based on the two books by Andrew Watts “Modern Construction Roofs” and “Modern Construction Facades”. Both volumes have been gathered into one single volume and unified in terms on content, which permits the consideration of facades and roofs as envelopes. This is of particular interest as to design and its creative freedom.

Using current examples of renowned architects, Andrew Watts presents the constructive and material related details. This presentation is based on an easy-to-understand text, photos, and standardized detail drawings as well 3D representations of the components. By means of this information, the partly complex structure of modern envelopes can easily be understood and used as know-how for one’s own needs.

The final part of this book deals with the topic “Future“ focusing on digitally controlled construction parts and upcoming application solutions for material und technology.
