Architectural Detailing, Second Edition is the new edition of the standard on architectural detailing, now greatly expanded with new instructional sections covering analysis and modification of existing details and design of new details, both basic and advanced. It tells readers how to design details that will not leak water or air, will control the flows of heat and water vapor, will adjust to all kinds of movement, will age gracefully, will be easy to construct, and will look good.
