The classic book Beazley's Design and Detail of the Space Between Buildings by A. and A. Pinder, ISBN 0419136207, is dedicated to the potential for these spaces to be designed with a level of care for function, durability, and aesthetics. The appropriate materials and arrangement for the back of a building may be very different from those for the front, but they are still part of the place-making of a building. They can still express respect for the people who experience them -- and sometimes they do.

The book is worth a look if you can find it in a library.
