Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Modern Construction Handbook has become a modern classic of building construction literature. In the USA, it is used as a reference work for many architectural courses. With the chapters "Material", "Wall", "Roof", "Structure", "Environment" and "Applications" it systematically explores the subject and provides a clear and efficient structure to the reader.

For the fourth edition, many of the 3D illustrations have been updated and, likewise, the technical information has been brought up to date. "Applications" showcases current developments, such as those relating tomass customization manufacture of components, and presents material and construction innovations.

A compact and systematic handbook filled with information, produced for students and young architects alike.
