Ornament is currently acquiring a renewed status through the articulation of the architectural surface, offering a means to explore the interactions between function and decoration, volume and surface, structure and envelope. This book gives a systematic account of the technologies employed in the production of ornament and the strategies of its application today, examining a range of international built examples.
