Since 1932, the ten editions of Architectural Graphic Standards have been referred to as the "architect's bible." From site excavation to structures to roofs, this book is the first place to look when an architect is confronted with a question about building design. With more than 8,000 architectural illustrations, including both reference drawings and constructible architectural details, this book provides an easily accessible graphic reference for highly visual professionals.

To celebrate seventy-five years as the cornerstone of an industry, this commemorative Eleventh Edition is the most thorough and significant revision of Architectural Graphic Standards in a generation. Substantially revised to be even more relevant to today's design professionals, it features:

An entirely new, innovative look and design created by Bruce Mau Design that includes a modern page layout, bold second color, and new typeface

Better organized-- a completely new organization structure applies the UniFormat(r) classification system which organizes content by function rather than product or material

Expanded and updated coverage of inclusive, universal, and accessible design strategies

Environmentally-sensitive and sustainable design is presented and woven throughout including green materials, LEEDS standards, and recyclability

A bold, contemporary new package--as impressive closed as it is open, the Eleventh Edition features a beveled metal plate set in a sleek, black cloth cover

Ribbon Markers included as a convenient and helpful way to mark favorite and well used spots in the book

All New material

Thoroughly reviewed and edited by hundreds of building science experts and experienced architects, all new details and content including:

new structural technologies, building systems, and materials

emphasis on sustainable construction, green materials, LEED standards, and recyclability

expanded and updated coverage on inclusive, universal, and accessible design strategies

computing technologies including Building Information Modeling (BIM) and CAD/CAM

new information on regional and international variations

accessibility requirements keyed throughout the text

new standards for conducting, disseminating, and applying architectural research
