"Contemporary architecture presents itself with various aesthetical standards. Besides the rational function of architectural design, architects now pay more attention to the continuity from the inside to the outside of buildings. At this point, the design of building skin and details could give a full presentation of such a tendency. As a new way of expression, it turns to be a new concern in the field of contemporary architectural design. This book has collected a number of masterpieces that could reflect the trend of modern architectural surface design. According to the composition of the building material, the book has been divided into six chapters. The case studies included in the book are accompanied by photographs and details of the nodes, which could objectively express the ideas and concepts of the architects."
