This handy pocket book brings together a wealth of useful information that architects need on a daily basis - on-site or in the studio. It provides clear guidance and invaluable detail on a wide range of issues, from planning policy through environmental design to complying with Building Regulations, from structural and services matters to materials characteristics and detailing. This sixth edition includes the updating of regulations, standards and sources across a wide range of topics, with a particular focus on sustainability issues. Compact and easy to use, the Architect's Pocket Book has sold well over 100,000 copies to the nation's architects, architecture students, designers and construction professionals who do not have an architectural background but need to understand the basics, fast. This is the famous little blue book that you can't afford to be without.

Jonathan Hetreed and Ann Ross have drawn from decades of experience of running their own architects' practice in Bath to update and extend the scope of this latest edition of Charlotte Baden-Powell's Architect's Pocket Book, reflecting continuing changes in design, construction and practice, incorporating new contributions from consultants and suppliers while retaining the compact scale and lively detail of the original. Charlotte Baden-Powell (1936-2006) was trained at the Architectural Association in London. She practised architecture for over 40 years, during which time she identified the need for this book, first published in 1997 and still incisively relevant today.
