Architectural Graphic Standards, 12th Edition

Product Code/ISBN: 9781118909508

Since 1932, Architectural Graphic Standards has 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 its status as the cornerstone of an industry, this commemorative 12th 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 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
