Abstract

This essay offers a moment of critical reflection on architectural detail by investigating its expressive and communicative potential when it shows the first idea of the designer or when it contributes to the structuring and characterization of the work, as an element or component. Through the reference literature, the widespread use of digital technologies and the most recent research on the subject, we will deepen the roles and critical issues of the detail as an interface for understanding the whole building system and for the characterization of architecture in the near future.
