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

This new edition of a classic, bestselling text provides, in one concise volume, the essential information needed to form the framework for the more detailed design and development of any building project. Organized largely by building type, it covers planning criteria and considerations of function and siting--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 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, religious, cultural, sports, medical, and other types of occupation.
* Covers user requirements, planning criteria, basic dimensions, and considerations of function and siting
* Includes numerous examples and over 6200 illustrations and tables
* 5th English edition of the classic, international reference for architects

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