Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Covers structures and places as diverse as residences, museums, libraries, and theaters, hospitals and nursing homes, churches, air and truck terminals, retail shops, restaurants, hotels, industrial parks, playgrounds, and arenas. This is a worthy competitor to Architectural graphic standards. It is illustrated with hundreds of plans, diagrams, tables, and schematics which help in the design of more functional, meaningful, and interesting buildings. De Chiara and Callender provide detailed information on the essential components of each building type, emphasizing the characteristic functions involved. This edition offers new information on facilities for such purposes as education, justice and correction, entertainment, health, and sports and recreation. The book features special sections on housing for the elderly and the handicapped, including access for the handicapped to public and government buildings. Annotation c.
