Despite the exaggerated news of the untimely 'death of the detail' by
Greg Lynn, the architectural detail is now more lifelike and active than
ever before. In this era of digital design and production technologies,
new materials, parametrics, building information modeling (BIM),
augmented realities and the nano-bio-information-computation
consilience, the detail is now an increasingly vital force in
architecture. Though such digitally designed and produced details are
diminishing in size to the molecular and nano levels, they are
increasingly becoming more complex, multi-functional, high performance
and self-replicating. Far from being a non-essential and final finish,
this new type of highly evolved high-tech detail is rapidly becoming the
indispensable and critical core, the (sometimes iconic) DNA of an
innovative new species of built environmental form that is spawning in
scale and prominence, across product, interior, urban and landscape
design. This issue of AD re-examines the history, theories and design of
the world’s most significant spatial details, and explores their
innovative potentials and possibilities for the future of architecture.
