    1. Brittany on said:

      This book lives on my desk at work Definitely written for architects or should I say illustrated there are few words.

    2. Jack Stephens on said:

      Required reading when I studied architecture and still a valuable resource for anyone with their hands in the design of buildings.

    3. LS on said:

      I read it from cover to cover The magic must be in the drawings because the prose is excruciatingly dry It is missing coverage of those little balconies and tiny patios common in many West coast apartment building high rises, as well as anything on welding symbols Not a self contained book if you do not know anything about construction, as I had to make sure I had read ahead in Allen Iano to fully understand what Ching was saying The place where this book is indispensable is in the completeness, [...]

    4. Hooper on said:

      This is hands down the most practically informative book I ve ever read although it s not really something you read cover to cover Very clear illustrations help in visualizing the construction of a building from locating the right site, to installing solar panels and casting your own concrete slabs.

    5. Lauren on said:

      This book is an excellent reference for architects, designers and any interested party in the construction industry Unless you re really interested in the mechanics of building technology, and have a general grasp of how things go together, this is certainly one to skip I found this invaluable when studying for my licensing exams and hold it in high esteem.

    6. Du on said:

      Really good resource to see how building construction is both simple and a very complex process The illustrations and the text documenting the different phases and the different requirements for safe and secure home building is very telling This is a reference book, so there is no story or prose to consider, and the collective education the pages offer, is very clear and concise.

    7. Laura on said:

      This is first go to book of reference on my shelf I prefer the second addition but all are very useful Lots of clear illustrations Good construction overview My copy is full of tabs and very worn A must have for architects and students of architecture

    8. Dawn on said:

      The most useful reference book I have used in my architectural career university course so far.

    9. Eippo1 on said:

      This book is the bible for any design drafter Such an amazing and indispensable tool.

    10. Michelle on said:

      I opened this book twice so far I will let you know if it gets useful in the future.
