An easy-to-use, updated illustrated guide to the 2012 edition of the International Building Code

This unique reference to the 2012 International Building Code marries the graphic skills of bestselling author Frank Ching with the code expertise of Steven Winkel, FAIA. It pulls out the portions of the building code that are most relevant for the architect and provides an easy-to-understand interpretation in both words and illustrations. Rather than a text-heavy book, this is much more conducive to quick comprehension of the code, presenting information in an exciting user-friendly visual format.

Excellent Content, Poor ebook Translation
Wiley made a poor job of making this an ebook for use on tablets and mobiles, the Adobe ebook edition is a joke with no search capability. It is a one to one
scan of a textbook so that means you have to pinch and zoom to make it even readable. The only saving grace of the Google edition is the ability to search making it great for reviewing code on the go.
