Design-Tech is an indispensable, holistic approach to architectural technology that shows you in hundreds of drawings and tables the why as well as the how of building science, providing you with a comprehensive overview. In this expanded edition, measurements and examples are listed in both metric and imperial units to reflect the global reality of architectural practice. The authors also address digital fabrication, construction documentation, ultra-high-rise structures, and zoning codes. And there's more in-depth coverage of structural design and greater emphasis on environmental forces. Numerous case studies demonstrate real-world design implications for each topic, so that you can integrate technical material with design sensibilities.

Short chapters explain each topic from first principles in easy-to-reference formats, focusing on what you need to know both at the drawing board and in future discussions with engineers, contractors, and consultants. This new edition incorporates material from continuing curricular experimentation in the SCI-TECH sequence at Iowa State University, which has been recognized with awards and funding from the American Institute of Architects, the U.S. Green Building Council, and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards.

Review:

Design Tech brings a refreshing approach to building technology systems and provides historical context, specification, measurement, and updated tools to students and practitioners.

Alison Kwok, Professor at University of Oregon

 

It provides the exact right amount of building technology information, clearly and concisely delivered, for architecture students.

The 2nd edition of Design Tech provides a comprehensive overview about the nuts and bolts of design in a single reference. The authors have distilled the most relevant information making it ideal for those interested in architectural design

Kevin Dong, Professor at California Polytechnic State University

 

With Design Tech we finally have the book that effectively extends building technology (teaching) into design studios and professional practice. A must have for students and young professionals.

Andrzej Zarzycki, Associate Professor at New Jersey Institute of Technology

 

Design-Tech is how I wish I had learned first principles of building technology: integrated, intuitive, and imaginatively illustrated.
