JA 107 is a special issue on architectural details. Through the consideration of 37 recent projects by Japanese architects, we examine the relationship between “spatial quality” and the underlying decisions made at the scale of detailing.

Featured works are presented through three mediums: the architects’ own words describing this relationship, detail drawings integral to the works, and photography of the corresponding spaces. While the total works are perhaps difficult to understand in the absence of plans and sections, if details indeed contain the essence of a space—where architects’ positions emerge—then detail drawings carry not merely information but also the very idea of architecture itself.

In this issue, we attempt to understand the essence of architecture through detail drawings in which traces of the architects’ hands remain. At the same time, it is also an endeavor to reconsider the meaning of details.
