Hot off the press: De-Tail Kultur

Hot off the press – Paper Chase prints a beautifully designed volume of architectural case studies by Christoph Kumpusch, including essays and work from industry leaders like Eric Owen Moss, Zaha Hadid, Lebbeus Woods among others.

“Architectural details are typically communicated through technical drawings. A photograph or model might convey details in context or the ultimate visual effect generated by a detail, but the drawing remains its standard referent and it is from drawings that details are archived, revised and appropriated.”┬áDetail Kultur examines the challenges of contextualizing architectural details by dissecting a collections of case studies, interviews, and analytical texts.
