From the Inside Flap:

Significant opportunities are opening up as architecture becomes more generalized and firms accept commissions for a widening range of building types. To take advantage of these opportunities, architects need instant information on the general issues, materials, systems, requirements, and general design guidelines associated with different types of structures. Building Type Basics books fulfill this need.

Building Type Basics for Elementary and Secondary Schools is a one-stop source for the essential information architects need to fast-start the design process. In this book, leading architects from across the United States share their knowledge and expertise on all aspects of elementary and secondary school design. The book provides critical information on the process, potential problems, design concerns, and recent trends in school design, along with complete coverage of energy issues and mechanical systems, structural concerns and acoustic control, lighting, internal traffic, security, and much more. This indispensable guide:

  • Asks and answers twenty questions that frequently arise in the early phases of a project commission
  • Provides project photographs, diagrams, floor plans, sections, and details
  • Features the wide experience of the author’s firm, Perkins Eastman Architects, as well as contributions from other industry leaders, such as Perkins & Will and Peter Gisolfi

Like every Building Type Basics book, it provides authoritative, up-to-date information instantly and saves architects countless hours of research.
