Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The new student edition of the definitive architectural reference

For seventy-five years, Architectural Graphic Standards has been the go-to reference for architects, builders, and engineers. Revised for the first time since 2000, Architectural Graphic Standards, Student Edition gives students their own handy resource.

Carefully abridged from the Eleventh Edition of Architectural Graphic Standards, this Student Edition features the same richly detailed graphics and text that have made Architectural Graphic Standards a classic, but updated and reorganized in a way that is relevant to today's student. Thousands of illustrations and a rich index offer immediate access to hundreds of architectural elements, while the wide variety of topics covered makes this work relevant throughout a student's architecture education and into the early stages of professional practice.

With a wealth of information for the student preparing for professional practice, this new edition:

  • Covers building standards and practices, materials and systems, and details for every type of project

  • Follows CSI's Uniformat, a classification system that closely matches an architect's workflow

  • Features completely updated content with a wide variety of standard architectural details

  • Offers an ancillary Web site featuring sample curriculums, student exercises, classroom projects, PowerPoint® slides, and more

Book News Annotation:

This student edition is an abridged version of the (much more expensive) 2007 full edition, which is cited in Resources for College Libraries. The 11th edition student version is updated from its previous 2000 publication. Bassler (architecture, Iowa State University) provides practical information for students preparing for professional practice; the book is divided into three substantial sections of building elements, materials, and issues of contemporary practices. Each section contains a multitude of chapters on related topics, and appendices include topics such as construction information systems, CAD standards, graphic symbols, and mathematical data. The book is liberally illustrated throughout with thousands of useful black-and-white charts, diagrams, and plans. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
