The new edition builds upon the classic content of its predecessor by incorporating information on concrete, steel, and glazing technology, energy efficiency in buildings, moisture and thermal protection, natural lighting, masonry, and other topics. Any excess coverage of systems and technology no longer in common use has been streamlined. The organization, which follows the typical design process, has been retained in this edition. This book should be of interest to architects, building contractors.
