The industry-standard guide to designing well-performing buildings Architectural Detailing systematically describes the principles by which good architectural details are designed. Principles are explained in brief, and backed by extensive illustrations that show you how to design details that will not leak water or air, will control the flow of heat and water vapor, will adjust to all kinds of movement, and will be easy to construct. This new third edition has been updated to conform to International Building Code 2012, and incorporates current knowledge about new material and construction technology. Sustainable design issues are integrated where relevant, and the discussion includes reviews of recent built works that extract underlying principles that can be the basis for new patterns or the alteration and addition to existing patterns. Regulatory topics are primarily focused on the US, but touch on other jurisdictions and geographic settings to give you a well-rounded perspective of the art and science of architectural detailing. In guiding a design from idea to reality, architects design a set of details that show how a structure will be put together. Good details are correct, complete, and provide accurate information to a wide variety of users. By demonstrating the use of detail patterns, this book teaches you how to design a building that will perform as well as you intend. Integrate appropriate detailing into your designs Learn the latest in materials, assemblies, and construction methods Incorporate sustainable design principles and current building codes Design buildings that perform well, age gracefully, and look great Architects understand that aesthetics are only a small fraction of good design, and that stability and functionality require a deep understanding of how things come together. Architectural Detailing helps you bring it all together with a well fleshed-out design that communicates accurately at all levels of the construction process.

The new industry standard on landscape architectural detailing Detailing for Landscape Architects takes the reader on an educational journey across three major areas of landscape architectural detailing—aesthetics, function, and constructibility—to demonstrate how powerful design patterns can transform thematic ideas into awe-inspiring built realities. Richly illustrated examples accompany concise discussions of a varied blend of landscape design/detailing issues such as water movement, soil environments, articulating structures and construction assemblies, life cycle costing, sustainability, health and safety, and more. This book approaches the subject of detailing in a systematic manner, and provides a balanced framework for design and workmanship that conveys the essence of the built landscape. Detailing for Landscape Architects shows how details can: Reinforce design ideas through the continuity and discontinuity of patterns Actively contribute to the overall form or geometry of the design Be designed to be durable and flexible while enhancing the entire design Gracefully accommodate the natural growth and change of plant materials Anticipate maintenance needs to minimize future disruptions Maximize their cost effectiveness through understanding their function while designing to meet those functions Including chapters that apply detail patterns to the design of an urban plaza, a roof deck, and a residence, Detailing for Landscape Architects offers guidance on solving specific technical requirements, while preserving and enhancing the visual qualities that celebrate innovation, and carry forth a timeless quality of building.

The comprehensive guide to construction tolerances, newly revised and updated How much may a steel frame be out of plumb? What are the expected variations of a precast concrete panel? What is required to successfully detail finish materials on masonry? Updating and expanding on its popular first edition, the Handbook of Construction Tolerances, Second Edition remains the only comprehensive reference to the thousands of industry standard tolerances for the manufacture, fabrication, and installation of construction materials and components-- including all-important accumulated dimensional variations. Covering new materials and techniques developed since the book was first published, the Second Edition of this easy-to-use reference features: * More than 100 drawings illustrating the tolerance concepts * New sections on measuring compliance with tolerance standards; right-of-way construction; autoclaved aerated concrete; tilt-up concrete panels; interior stone wall cladding; structural insulated panels; decorative architectural glass; laminated architectural flat glass and bent glass * New guidelines on how to incorporate tolerance requirements in drawings and specifications * New information on how to apply tolerance information during contract administration With the Handbook, architects, engineers, contractors, interior designers, lawyers, and others involved in the construction industry will be armed with the information they need to design and detail more accurately, write better specifications, establish normal practice and standards of care, supervise construction, settle worksite disputes, and save time and money at every stage of building.

What separates good architecture from great architecture? The difference lies in the details. The way an architect chooses to treat architectural detailingscreens and walls, doors and windows, roofs, bridges, and stairscan transform the merely ordinary into the extraordinary. Detail in Process, the second volume in the new AsBuilt series, features twenty-five awe-inspiring projects characterized by an unusual synthesis of aesthetics and materials: the sunshade at Morphosis's Student Recreation Center in Cincinnati; the embossed and perforated copper skin of Herzog & de Meuron's de Young Museum in San Francisco; the handrails at Mir Rivera Architects', Lake Austin Footbridge in Austin; the stairs at Heatherwick Studio's, Longchamp Store in New York City; plus twenty more. Editors Christine Killory and Ren Davids have collected the best work of the past two years including new buildings by some of today's most daring and detail-obsessed architects: Norman Foster, James Carpenter, John Ronan, Renzo Piano, Marmol Radziner, Tadao Ando, Steven Holl, Jean Nouvel, David Chipperfield, and SANAA. Comprehensively documented, Detail in Process includes the plans, details, and large-scale sections needed to appreciate the innovative ways these architects have responded to complicated design problems.
