Façades need to fulfill functional as well as aesthetical values: they have to provide an all-season protection against meteorological conditions, fit in its surrounding space but simultaneously present an own individuality and finally communicate the purpose of the building.

This book aims to demonstrate the variety of European façade design, ranging from frugal to pompously ornate. Presenting an ambitious array of façades, impressive photographs reveal the intriguing diversity of the European metropolis. They document the entire scope of surface design from ancient to brand new, from frugal to pompously ornate, from functional to playful.

The volume is part of a series, which is focused not on prominent buildings at large but on ingenious and extraordinary details.
