    Overview

    • The worldwide recognized construction handbook for architects
    • Systematically structured and prepared with the student in mind
    • With an overview poster as navigation aid

    Aims and Scope

    Systematically structured and prepared with the student in mind, the book conveys in one volume the necessary basic technical building construction knowledge to enable readers to implement a wide range of designs. For this reason, over the last 14 years, it has developed into an indispensable information and reference handbook, not only for students and teachers, but also for architects.

    The 4th edition of this standard work for building construction has again been revised in terms of content and illustrations. References to standards, thermal insulation standards, and some project examples have been updated; they are now comprehensively and systematically documented, explaining the design process from start to finish.

    Reviews

    "Architektur Konstruieren ist im besten Sinne ein Handbuch […] das Baustoffe, Bauelemente und Strukturen vorstellt, anhand bemerkenswerter Architektur exemplifiziert und in einem breiten kulturellen Kontext verortet. Es eignet sich daher auch für interessierte Laien, die wissen wollen, wie Architektur entsteht." Neue Zürcher Zeitung

    "Wer braucht also dieses Buch? Wenn Studenten es gelesen haben, sollte sie keine Klausur mehr schrecken, und außerdem hätten sie, neben den technischen Tricks, auch den Sinn der ganzen Sache begriffen. Dass das Buch lesenswert ist und es Spaß macht, darin zu stöbern, macht es auch für andere empfehlenswert." Bauwelt
