More than just a reference, this book is a true companion that no practicing architect or student should be without. This book provides quick access to guidelines for systems that affect the form and spatial organization of buildings and allows this information to be incorporated into the earliest stages of building design. With it you can: Select, configure, and size structural systems Plan for building heating and cooling Incorporate passive systems and daylighting into your design Design for parking and meet code-related life-safety and accessibility requirements Relying on straightforward diagrams and clear written explanations, the designer can lay out the fundamental systems of a building in a matter of minutes--without getting hung up on complicated technical concepts. By introducing building systems into the early stages of design, the need for later revisions or redesign is reduced, and projects stay on time and on budget. The Architect's Studio Companion is the time-saving tool that helps you bring it all together from the beginning.
