Overview

This comprehensive text provides a complete overview for beginning and intemediate students. With equal emphasis on design and drafting, the book leads students through the design of a contemporary home from preliminary program to finished rendering, with plans included in relevant chapters. Applied academics are integrated throughout the text, applying math, social studies, science, and communication to the field of architectural drafting. Career profiles give students the perspective they need to plan their own careers. Beyond the basics, the text also explores such contemporary issues as environmental sensitivity, accessibility for the physically challenged, alternate energy sources, radon control, earthquake protection, and construction administration, to name a few. A complete set of plans exposes students to commercial construction. Features on computers and the Internet prepare students for the technological challenges they will encounter in the workforce. An ideal introduction to architectural drafting and design!
