Overview

A comprehensive source of traditional architectural details for anyone working with old structures Compiling the most useful material from the first four editions of Architectural Graphic Standards published between 1932 and 1951, this book brings back into circulation hundreds of architectural illustrations and standards that have once again become relevant to design work. Chapters cover all facets of building construction from foundations to furnishings and are structured to follow the drawing preparation sequence of a typical rehabilitation project. Architects, designers, and others involved in rebuilding and renovating structures built in decades past will find here many of the details and information used by the original architects and builders. Impeccably organized and beautifully rendered, this handsome reference is both a terrific working tool and a wonderful addition to an architecture library.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
<:st> Paperbound printing of the 1991 cloth reprint now OP of the first four editions, 1932--1951, of the premier work on North American architectural detail. The latest 1988 edition of AGS retains less than one page of material from the first 1932 edition. Those working on historic structures will treasure this collection of materials and practices of past decades. AGS is cited in the first edition of BCL1, but is, unaccountably , absent in BCL3. We'd accepted BCL as an ideal guide to a basic library collection until this glaring glitch. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
