This book shows that the potential of render goes far beyond current application practices, and the wide range of design options plastering offers for the planning and implementation of building facades. Using photos, detailed drawings, and scale facade cuts, the publication documents 18 buildings using new and traditional plastering techniques. Featuring interviews with experts in architecture and craftsmanship, who share their insights into render from production to application. They also relate the history of rough renders and the complex interplay between render and paint. In addition, ten recipes and an illustrated glossary offer a practical guide to produce an array of renders, including lime marsh and scratch render.
