If we speak here about detailing, we restrict ourselves to the simultaneously architectural and technically challenging details of the building enclosure. Fascia, plinth, quoins, openings are, one is tempted to say „archetype“ places, at where solutions of technical problems leave traces which mark the „face“ of the building, complete its „picture“. These are the places at which technical problems concentrate on closest area and which, since they are usually very exposed, are particularly sensitively noticed. Between appearance and function respectively between the detail as an architectural solution of a design problem and the detail as a technical solution of bringing together different building components, a relationship exists – a coherency. A second relationship exists between the detail and the whole ensemble. As the expression of the tectonic form produced by the detail can only exist before the background of a design concept, the technical solution represented by the detail can be merged into a continuous overall performance only in agreement with the construction concept.

Image and Detail
Details as technical solutions and images as design expressions are interrelated. Not only do architects have to perect their ability toproduce the „what“ o a building – the power o visions and images – but also have to be in control o the „how“ – the expressiono technique.Establishing the „how“ today demands more o an eort by the architect than in ormer times. First, the physical and material/technical complexity o detail problems has increased due to the increasing technical requirements and due to countless newbuilding materials. Second the structural changes within the building proession have resulted in a nearly complete lack o commontraditions and an absence o a general consensus in how to build and how to use a material.I we speak here about detailing, we restrict ourselves to the simultaneously architectural and technically challenging details o thebuilding enclosure. Fascia, plinth, quoins, openings are, one is tempted to say „archetype“ places, at where solutions o technicalproblems leave traces which mark the „ace“ o the building, complete its „picture“. These are the places at which technicalproblems concentrate on closest area and which, since they are usually very exposed, are particularly sensitively noticed. Betweenappearance and unction respectively between the detail as an architectural solution o a design problem and the detail as atechnical solution o bringing together dierent building components, a relationship exists – a coherency. A second relationshipexists between the detail and the whole ensemble. As the expression o the tectonic orm produced by the detail can only existbeore the background o a design concept, the technical solution represented by the detail can be merged into a continuous overallperormance only in agreement with the construction concept.
Three details make all the dierence. Fascia, plinth, quoins, openings are „archetype“ places, at where solutions o technical problems leave traces which mark the„ace“ o the building, complete its „picture“.

Model representation of the building enclosure
A way o thinking – a unctional analogy based on the essentials o the building enclosure – is proposed to enable architects tohandle both the development o design and technical decisions in their interrelationship at all depths o notional penetration.In that way o thinking the enclosure is constituted o two main elements:The components o the building shell (e.g. roo, slab, wall) with their rules and specicationsThe transitions between these components (e.g. wall – roo, wall – slab, wall – base) with their set o common rules. Break-outs incomponents (e.g. openings) represent a special orm o the transitionsIn correspondence with the two elements two notional tools are proposed:Layer outline: With the help o the layer outline one can control on the level o components their unctional cooperating in general.Joint space: With the help o the joint space one designs the material linkage o the components in particular - the detail.The always existing relationship between particular and ensemble, respectively between a material decision on the level o detail anda unctional decision on the level o components, remains always controllable by the reciprocal eect o layer outline and joint space.
