Architects’ Data – Ernst and Peter Neufert – 3rd Edition

Description

Architects’ Data provides an essential reference for the initial and planning of a building project. Organised largely by building type; and with over 6000 diagrams; it provides a mass of data on spatial requirements and also covers planning criteria and considerations of function and siting.

Most illustrations are dimensioned and each building type includes plans; sections; site layouts and details. There are substantial new sections on:

· building components
·
· heating
· lighting
· thermal and sound insulation
· fire protection
· designing for the disabled

An extensive bibliography and a detailed set of metric/imperial conversion are included.

Since it was first published in Germany in 1936; Ernst Neufert’s has been progressively revised and updated through 35 editions and many translations.

This Third Edition of the English language version has been revised for the first time in 20 years and completely reworked; with 40% more material; to provide a major new edition for an international readership.
