The Architecture Reference & Specification Book: Everything Architects Need to Know Every Day

Front Cover
Rockport Publishers, 2013 - Architecture - 272 pages

Most architectural standards references contain thousands of pages of details—overwhelmingly more than architects need to know to know on any given day. The Architecture Reference & Specification Book contains vital information that's essential to planning and executing architectural projects of all shapes and sizes, in a format that is small enough to carry anywhere. It distills the data provided in standard architectural volumes and is an easy-to-use reference for the most indispensable—and most requested—types of architectural information.
