This is a superbly illustrated volume exploring the challenges and rewards of working with building exteriors. The outside of a building is one it's most important features - it gives it character and tells visitors what to expect when they enter. "Building Skins", filled with full-colour photography and detailed architectural drawings, provides architects and designers with a detailed look at some of the most creative and original concepts in the field. Each featured project also includes insightful discussions on how the architects and designer approached the specific challenges posed by their designs and how they overcame them.
