Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The architect's favorite handbook—more informative and easier to use than ever!

The Architect's Studio Companion is the laborsaving design resource that architects and builders have relied on for years. Now in its fourth edition, this industry standard continues its reputation as a reliable tool for the preliminary selecting, configuring, and sizing of the structural, mechanical, and egress systems of a building. Bestselling authors Edward Allen and Joseph Iano reduce complex engineering and building code information to simple approximations that enable the designer to lay out the fundamental systems of a building in a matter of minutes and get on with the design.

Now in a flex binding that makes it even easier to use, The Architect's Studio Companion, Fourth Edition provides quick access to reliable rules of thumb that offer vital help for selecting, configuring, and sizing:

  • Structural systems
  • Heating, cooling, and electrical systems
  • Egress provisions, including exit stairways, parking garages, and parking lots
  • Daylight provisions

The book concludes with precalculated tables of building code height and area limitations.

Book News Annotation:

Allen has taught at various institutions across the U.S., including Yale and MIT for 30 years, and is the author of several books on architecture; a practicing architect, Iano has been Allen's illustrator, collaborator, and coauthor for 25-plus years. They present an updated edition of their resource text for architects and builders, now in a flex binding for ease of use. Functioning as a desktop technical advisor, it reduces complex engineering and building code information to simple formal and spatial approximations that are readily incorporated into design explorations. It provides vital help for selecting, configuring and sizing structural systems; heating, cooling, and electrical systems; egress provisions, including exit stairways, parking garages, and parking lots; and daylight provisions. Specific revisions to the text are not stated.
