Item description for Staircases: Design and Construction by Karl J. Habermann...

Despite the ever-widening range of ready-made components on the market, an expertly made staircase aptly fitting the building is still a hallmark of good architecture, and reveals much about an architect's approach to design, construction and materials. This volume reviews the current state of technology in stair construction, providing a comprehensive overview of the latest production methods useful for the day-to-day work. Following an introductory essay on the development of staircases, the fundamental principles in building stairs are documented, and essential information is provided on the crucial elements of construction and the creative possibilities of the basic materials wood, steel and concrete. The theory is illustrated by a large number of extensively documented international examples, providing an invaluable source of inspiration for builders and architects. As a practical aid, the book contains a subject index, glossary, and information on current regulations and norms.

Reviews - What do customers think about Staircases: Design and Construction?

Not a good book  Dec 22, 2005
This book is really a stylistic overview of different stairs.
It doesn't measure up to Birkhauser's Construction Manual Series. The 'Case Study Section'(the body of the book)is almost worthless from a technical point of view. You will find many obvious statements used to describe what you can already see in photographs. You will find precious little "behind the scenes" nuts and bolts discussion here. The price of the book in combination with the contents of the book calls to mind the word: "Hoax."
