An indispensable tool for the initial stages of designing and planning a building project

This new edition of the classic bestselling text provides, in one concise volume, the essential information needed as the basis for the more detailed design and development of any building project. Organized largely by building type, it covers the planning criteria and considerations of function and location--and with over 6200 diagrams, it provides a mass of data on spatial requirements.

Most of the featured illustrations are dimensioned and each building type includes plans, sections, site layouts and design details. The book also includes an extensive bibliography and detailed set of metric/imperial conversion tables.

Architects' Data, 6th Edition starts with the basics of designing for a new building project, before moving on to covering everything an architect needs to know. It also looks at the design styles and specifications for creating different types of structures, such as those made for residential, commercial, religious, cultural, sports, medical and other types of occupation.
* Sixth English edition of the classic, international reference for architects
* Covers user requirements, planning criteria, basic dimensions, and considerations of function and siting
* Includes numerous examples and over 6200 illustrations and tables

New in the Sixth Edition:
* Updated sections on lighting, stairs and lifts, energy performance certificates and fire protection
* New sections on electric charging stations, beekeeping and newsrooms, and tiny houses
* Additional sections on sustainable building materials added to relevant chapters

Architects' Data is an excellent resource for architects, building surveyors, space planners, and design and building contractors everywhere.

In the BSc year 1 modules of Graphic Skills and in Introducing Urban Design. We have a target of 50 students per year, but student numbers have increased in the last few years to 60s, and 80s this current year. We do not have compulsory reading, we provide indicative reading lists. This book is one which is very much used in tutorials and as a reference to explain and expand the understanding of scale in built environment project proposals. The proposed changes look up to date. There are sections which I look forward to see details of, such as ?transport? and ?urban development?, in particular if there will be reference to different sized urban areas (from small towns to megacities), historic towns vs planned new towns, infill development and degrees of public/privateness of open space. In past years, our VLE was used simply as a repository of references. This year was 100% online, with digital customised resources and extracts of textbooks provided by the library, and although I have been in maternity and sabbatical leave, I know colleagues have used a combination of blended activities through synchronous group and individual tutoring and asynchronous lecturing. -Elisabete Cidre, University College London I was introduced to Neufert in university where it was on the reading list, and still rely upon it, and the Metric Handbook, today. Neufert goes into more depth than other books. Another resource I like is from RIBA, they offer a set of small pocket-sized books which provide checklists and other details that I can use while on a site or at a client. I would love to see links to suppliers, and codes or regulations, especially docs that are ?digital native? ? 16x9 resolution, for example. Digital content can focus on the high-level topics, and let me drill into the details that I need. Updated content about sustainability is important. [Ed note: Although we have only print rights to Neufert, we will consider the above digital content insights in other product development.] - Justin Nicholls, Fathom Architects, London
Ernst Neufert (15 March 1900 -- 23 February 1986) was a German architect and assistant to Walter Gropius at the Bauhaus. He taught at the Bauhochschule and Darmstadt University of technology, and opened his own practice, Neufert and Neufert, in 1953.
