SERVICES The Architect's Handbook of Professional Practice has been a definitive guide to architectural practice for almost a century. Now the Thirteenth Edition brings that experience to the cutting edge of the profession-with vital information to help architects manage the change from product-based practices to those that are knowledge-based and service-oriented.

Also included are samples of the AIA contract documents (more than 75 in all), now accessible electronically on CD-ROM.
