Looking closely at 20th century architecture and design

The details are not the details
They make the design
Charles Eames

50 contributors share their favourite details in C20 architecture and design. Among them are the ‘delightful bronze brackets’ in a London furniture store; a ‘triangular-coffered
ceiling, perforated with 750 drinking-glass skylights’ in a Los Angeles residence; a drainpipe, ‘robust in detail, but delicate in thinking’, in a block of flats in Florence; a ‘wonderfully optimistic’ mural in Huddersfield; a wet riser outlet/pressure regulating valve sitting ‘patiently, modestly, poetically and beautifully’ in every lift-lobby of the Barbican Estate; and the ‘wonderful, space-age numbers in the entrance’ of a building in Sheffield.
