Speaking on the role of details in architecture
What is the role (importance) of detailing in today’s building practices?
Has the need for well-developed and refined details linked to the specific project disappeared?
Speaking at the Cinark-seminar May 4th 2017
In architecture details prove the level of knowledge and skill of both the architect, the manufacturer and the craftsman – and they are REAL! Details are determined by the material qualities and by the technical as well as cultural understanding of their purpose and meaning. Details determine the essence, durability and vitality of the building in present situations and over time. Details supply new perceptions and findings long after the idiomatic treatment of the building has been exhausted.
Are we facing a digital driven redevelopment of craftsmanship that will reinvent custom made architectural details? And do the details of today serve the needs of tomorrow – who defines the properties and longevity of the good solutions?
