Most architectural standards references contain thousands of pages of details, overwhelmingly more than architects need to know on any given day. In contrast, The Architecture Reference & Specification Book updated & revised distills the data provided in standard architectural volumes in an easy-to-use reference covering the most indispensable—and most requested—types of architectural information.
The Reference & Specification Book series from Rockport Publishers offers students and practicing professionals in a range of creative industries must-have information in their area of specialty in an up-to-date, concise handbook.
