"...this book presents the drawings alongside a clear description of the function of each individual element. This book would be valuable for anyone who wants to learn how and why things are built, rather than just copying some random detail from a google image search."

From the Back Cover
THE CLASSIC DETAILING TEXT, UPDATED WITH THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN PRACTICE AND CODES
Architectural Detailing is the go-to text for learning to design details that perform well and look great. Systematically laying out the principles of quality architectural detailing in a highly visual format, this book demonstrates the proper integration of appropriate detailing into ambitious designs, not just safe ones. This new third edition has been updated to include information on new materials, assemblies, and construction methods, and employs recently built works in order to extract underlying principles that can serve as a basis for new patterns. While primarily US-centric in regulatory matters, the text is fully aligned with International Building Codes, and touches on other jurisdictions and geographical settings to provide a well-rounded reference on architectural detailing.
- Understand detailing patterns related to function, constructibility, and aesthetics
- Learn how detailing patterns are applied during the design process
- Follow along with the detailing process of wood, concrete, and brick veneer buildings
- Apply detailing principles and patterns through hands-on exercises
With comprehensive coverage and over 500 illustrations, Architectural Detailing is the most current and useful reference to guide designers through the process of architectural detailing.

The "patterns" developed in the book are rich and diverse. Although some patterns are essential for nearly all details of a certain type (i.e. removing water from a wall), many are just good ideas. They encourage the architect to create a "hierarchy of values" for their details and apply the patterns that are most relevant to each detail according to that hierarchy. I could even see an architect explaining how she/he is planning to address a client's needs by pointing to particular detailing patterns that she/he will use throughout the project to ensure quality/efficiency.
By teaching us how and why to fish rather than providing a list of currently popular fish, this book is certain to have a long and useful life. I have no doubts that this will be the definitive architectural detailing text of its kind for both students and new and old professionals for many, many years to come.
In sum, another great publication from Ed Allen and Pat Rand.
"Architectural Detailing" allows for just that: this well-illustrated book provides a reference for further examination and understanding of detailing systems employed in many of the buildings the stand around us. Understanding these systems, which the book often presents in their most principal form, allows architects -- both practicing and aspiring -- along with other building professionals and lay persons alike, to readily grasp the fundamentals of well-designed building details.
