Facades & Cladding Systems

From the Oxford English Dictionary;

Architecture = The art or practice of designing and constructing buildings

Façade = The principal front of a building, that faces on to a street or open space

Cladding = A covering or coating on a structure or material

Design = A plan or drawing produced to show the look and function or workings of a building, garment, or other object before it is made:

Aesthetics = A set of principles concerned with the nature and appreciation of beauty

These are very important words that apply to every building and a lot of thought must be directed to how the finished building will look and fit in to its surroundings.
