The second edition of Modern Construction Envelopes was originally based on the two books by Watts, MC Roofs and MC Facades. Both volumes were gathered into one single volume. Using current examples by renowned architects, Watts presents the constructive and material-related details. It is based on a text, photos, and standardized detail drawings, as well as 3D representations of the components.
