Overview

With over 1200 illustrations, plans, and detail drawings, Constructing Architecture is a veritable encyclopedia for anyone interested in the essential technical information needed for building and construction, regardless of design style. This lavish but systematically organized book is divided into sections on materials, building components, building types, case studies, and a catalog of components, all drawn to a common scale, providing everything the professional or the student might need to transform their designs into built projects. Underlying this enormously practical book is a respect for the primacy of design, the belief that building is not simply a fact of engineering or technology, but the translation and culmination of a creative act that can only be successfully completed if the technical principles of construction are well understood. Anyone seeking that knowledge will find it bursting from the pages of Constructing Architecture.
