A comprehensive summary of the vocabulary used across the building industry, from the preparation of an architectural brief, through creative and technical design, to construction technology and facilities management. The latest edition has several substantially revised entries as well as many new additions, including new illustrations and terms. Covering a range of disciplines across architecture and building and including both SI metric and Imperial units, this dictionary and reference work will enable students and professionals to use and understand vocabulary from other areas of expertise, and contribute to better communication.

'An elegantly condensed summary of such a vast domain of human thought and effort.' -- William J. Mitchell, Architectural Science Review 'This dictionary - like its predecessors - is an excellent practical reference tool that deserves a place in any architectural or construction library.' - William J. Mitchell, Architectural Science Review
