This volume is a graphic guide to 20th century ornamentation. It presents the function of ornamentation as the means of transmitting specific sensations, dismantling the idea that ornament is applied to buildings as a differentiated and non-essential entity. Each case operates with greater or lesser depth to exploit the specific synergies between the exterior and the interior, building an internal order between ornamentation and material. These internal orders generate contemporary expressions, although their repercussions remain over time.
