UAD for Libraries and Institutions

Thank you for your interest in Understanding Architectural Details. The ebooks and associated digital files are not available to libraries or institutions, however, hard copies can be purchased for this use.

The books have already been purchased by some universities, and are hitting the shelves of libraries around the country. They are giving students the opportunity to benefit from the information within the books from their own university library. There are currently no other books like Understanding Architectural Details. The 2d and 3d images contained in the book give clear examples of standard details, in various forms of construction. The way the details are presented allow students to gain a thorough understanding of the construction.

Let me take a moment to tell you a bit more about the content of each book.

Book 1 focuses on residential and domestic construction methods, in particular masonry and timber frame. It also looks at green roofs, a form of construction that is particularly popular due to its eco credentials.
