Review "Allen and Rand keep their attention on what adds up to make a great space while including sustainability and the International Building code to this edition. Their concise patterns control water and air leakage, control heat and sound flow, accommodate movement, provide structural support, allow for mechanical and electrical services, maintain health and safety, consider the life cycle of the building, and ensure construction through ease of assembly, efficient use of construction resources, and judicious use of aesthetically satisfying but forgiving details. It maintains its reputation for delivering reliable, insightful information on such topics as how to design details that will be water- and airtight, control the flows of heat and water vapor, adjust to all kinds of movement, age gracefully, be easy to construct, and still look good.

Architectural Detailing: Function, Constructibility, Aesthetics, 3rd Edition
You are currently using the site but have requested a page in the site. Would you like to change to the site? Edward Allen , Patrick Rand. Principles are explained in brief, and backed by extensive illustrations that show you how to design details that will not leak water or air, will control the flow of heat and water vapor, will adjust to all kinds of movement, and will be easy to construct. This new third edition has been updated to conform to International Building Code , and incorporates current knowledge about new material and construction technology. Sustainable design issues are integrated where relevant, and the discussion includes reviews of recent built works that extract underlying principles that can be the basis for new patterns or the alteration and addition to existing patterns.
Architectural Detailing: Function - Constructibility - Aesthetics, 2nd Edition
This edition of the industry standard on architectural detailing includes new sections covering analysis and modification of existing details and design of new details, both basic and advanced. Conveniently organized by the three major concerns of the detailer—function, constructibility, and aesthetics—this edition features:. Describes systematically and in readily usable form the principles by which good architectural details are designed. The first section examines each of the patterns and illustrates several instances of its use. The latter part demonstrates the execution of these patterns in the design of key details for three different buildings types. Extensively illustrated.
