1-Architectural Graphic Standards

Charles George Ramsey,Charles George Ramsey,Harold Reeve Sleeper

This standard reference is cited in Books for College Libraries, 1st ed., but is inexplicably absent in Books for College Libaries, 3d ed.. This is the new edition of the architect's desktop reference that details the latest changes in regulations, standards, building methods, structural systems, and materials in use today. Each page is a self-contained data sheet, with visual representations of installation and design configurations and recommended performance specifications for all building systems and components from door frames, roof designs, and air ducts, to outdoor sports facilities and historic preservation. New to this edition are chapters on accessibility and security design, plus expanded coverage of seven new building systems, lighting designs, new materials, and environmental construction. Oversize.

Widely recognized as the most authoritative, comprehensive reference in the field for over 60 years, this classic reference reflects all recent changes in design standards, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Beautifully enhanced with over 10,500 masterfully-rendered illustrations, the guide features over 60% new material. -

Now comes the most complete design tool yet--the completely updated and expanded Tenth Edition. You'll find a wealth of information, complete with 10,000 drawings.
