Overview

This indispensable, holistic approach to architectural technology shows in hundreds of drawings and tables the why as well as the how of building science, providing you with a comprehensive, clear, and concise introduction to the subject. In this expanded edition, the authors address digital fabrication and prototyping, technical documentation, structural design, energy modeling, building information modeling, environmental stewardship, and cost control and budgeting. There's also more in-depth coverage of systems, elevators, and building security, and greater emphasis on environmental forces. Numerous case studies illustrate how theory works in practice to give you the full picture of the discipline, so that you can integrate technical material with design sensibilities.

Topics are covered in short overview chapters that list measurements and examples in both metric and imperial units, and that contain supporting charts, illustrations, and clear references to further reading. This focus on broad integration makes Design-Tech your quick primer on a wide range of individual subjects.
