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
The best and most representative traditional-style details from volumes 1 through 4 of Architectural graphic standards. The focus is on materials and details once again in high demand owing to the increase in building rehabilitation, historic preservation, and the rise of post-modern architecture. Topics include roofing made of slate, clay tile, and copper and other metals; classical cabinetwork; and walls and paving of stone. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
