Editorial Reviews

Review

"What also may be quickly becoming just as valuable a tool for those in training to become design professionals, Architectural Graphic Standards Student Edition, is making its case as a must-have student reference manual." (chicagoarchitecturetoday.com; 1/09)

"Beautifully designed and resplendent with thousands of clear architectural illustrations, this title is an indispensable resource for all architecture Students, new architects, and libraries supporting architecture programs. Highly recommended." (Choice, December 2008, Vol. 46 No. 04)

From the Back Cover

The new student edition of the definitive architectural reference

For seventy-five years, Architectural Graphic Standards has been the go-to reference for architects, builders, and engineers. Revised for the first time since 2000, Architectural Graphic Standards, Student Edition gives students their own handy resource.

Carefully abridged from the Eleventh Edition of Architectural Graphic Standards, this Student Edition features the same richly detailed graphics and text that have made Architectural Graphic Standards a classic, but updated and reorganized in a way that is relevant to today's student. Thousands of illustrations and a rich index offer immediate access to hundreds of architectural elements, while the wide variety of topics covered makes this work relevant throughout a student's architecture education and into the early stages of professional practice.

With a wealth of information for the student preparing for professional practice, this new edition:

  • Covers building standards and practices, materials and systems, and details for every type of project

  • Follows CSI's Uniformat, a classification system that closely matches an architect's workflow

  • Features completely updated content with a wide variety of standard architectural details

  • Offers an ancillary Web site featuring sample curriculums, student exercises, classroom projects, PowerPoint® slides, and more

At less than $40 for a used copy, the Student Edition can't be beat, as it provides most of the essential information from the complete Graphic Standards. The information is organized along the lines of Masterspec with additional sections on Energy and Environmental Design and Historic Preservation. It is certainly enough to get you started. It is also important to have relevant code books. Ching's Building Codes Illustrated is a good place to start. It is nice to have so much building construction information consolidated into one book.

This a much cheaper yet still useful version of the architect's bible. Any person who designs space should have either this or the unabridged edition.

I was introduced to the AGS very early in my career in construction. But I never had one of my own. Hard cover editions cost over $500. This soft cover edition fills the void very nicely. The graphics are just like what I became used to over the years and It's just a lot of fun to browse cover to cover and experience the wealth of information and data available therein.
