This is the third revised edition of this book and, like so much of Birkhauser's output, is bilingual in German/English. 'Facades' is a promotional vehicle for Schuco International, a major cladding contractor with substantial operations worldwide and annual turnover (in 2008) in excess of 2 billion Euros.

The book is a miscellany, catalogued under building uses including: offices, commercial, hotels, cultural, retail, leisure, educational and high-end homes and most of the featured projects are afforded a two-page spread. Featured buildings include OMA's Dutch Embassy (Berlin), Hadid's Ordrupgaard Museum (Copenhagen), Morphosis' Hypo-Alpe-Adria Center (Klagenfurt), BDP's 'egg' auditorium for Napier University, Murray + Dunlop's Sentinel Building and 3D Architecture's 'Glasgow Herald' revamp.
