Abstract: This dissertation examines the principles of good craftsmanship in architecture detailing. It studies how irregularities and constraints can be used positively to inform the creative process of making. Just as a carpenter works around knots and defects in a piece of wood, these imperfect conditions help to shape the final design. Good craftsmanship requires an architect to design according to the context. When designing contextually, conditions will deviate from the ideal. Limitations and constrains in the physical realm will affect the design idea. A good craftsman will place positive value on such constraints. This paper seeks to draw the connection between craftsmanship and imperfections and identifying the principles behind detailing such imperfection, of making perfect what seems imperfect. It does so through the study of Kevin Low’s architecture details.
