Item description for Modern Construction: Handbook (Modern Construction Series) by Andrew Watts...

The modern Construction Handbook examines a very wide range of construction options available to the contemporary designer in a concise, digestible format. It illustrates the wide spectrum of construction techniques in use, explaining how materials are chosen and the performance criteria that determine the way they are assembled. Throughout the book, built examples by high profile designers are used to illustrate generally accepted principles. The construction techniques described are applicable internationally. Each of the book's six chapters examines a particular aspect of construction from materials to structure, walls, roofs, environmental design and internal fittings. Specific elements are clearly explained, using a spread-by-spread approach, accompanied by fully annotated drawn details. The Modern Construction Handbook will provide a unique resource for the practising architect and student, as well as other members of the design team.

Reviews - What do customers think about Modern Construction: Handbook (Modern Construction Series)?

great reference book to own  Oct 2, 2007
This particular book is a great reference for architectural students. It shows all types of materials, connections of materials, etc. It is a must have.
A Great Resource.  Feb 4, 2002
I have found this book so helpful that it sits immediately adjacent to my copy of Architectural Graphic Standards.

If you follow architectural publications, you will find this handbook catalogs recent noteworthy works that you are familiar with, and many others that you are not. Specifically, this book is organized according to specific building component types (i.e. curtainwall systems, millwork, stairs.) For each of these types, the book offers a color photograph of a built example, and then several blackline details revealing the technical composition required for such an aesthetic effect. The best thing is, the book offers 3+ examples of each component type.

I recommend this book for all practicing architects who are involved in all scales of building types.
