Aesthetics, Durability, and Sustainability of Extruded Aluminum Trim

“God is in the Details”, one of several iconic phrases from Mies van der Rohe, which continues to haunt architects today. Details are where Architects make a difference and with the importance of green building practices, detailing needs to meet both design aesthetic and sustainability requirements. Sprecifying extruded aluminum for exterior trim details with a wide range of façade materials, is an instance where understanding of the product can contribute to both.
