Architectural Graphic Standards, 12th Edition

  • $ 280.95

Endorsed by the American Institute of Architects, the Architectural Graphic Standards is the written authority for architects, designers, and building contractors. It provides comprehensive guidance on the visual representation of materials, products, systems, and assemblies.

Updated to reflect the most current codes and standards, this new 12th edition features more than 300 new drawings, tables, and designs and 25 percent new content. In response to architects' feedback and overwhelming demand for a more graphics-heavy format, this edition employs shorter, more accessible texts and more images of the standards and evolution of design and construction. New coverage includes building resiliency and the building envelope, expert discussion on the fundamentals of design and construction documentation, and new examination of environmental factors and material properties and performance. Sustainable design is no longer separated, but incorporated throughout, and extensive appendices keep useful data right at your fingertips.

Architectural Graphic Standards, 12th Edition features:

  • Key architectural design and production processes-functional planning, environmental assessment, building resiliency, and architectural construction documentation
  • Thorough coverage of materials: concrete, masonry, metals, wood, plastics, composites, and glass
  • An exhaustive survey of building elements-substructures, shells, services, equipment, furnishings, special structures, and site works
  • Comprehensive appendixes filled with pertinent data such as: classic architectural elements, mathematical data, and structural calculations
