The Architecture Handbook
The Architecture Handbook: A Student Guide to Understanding Buildings focuses on the design and construction of residential architecture. The 400-page full color student edition and a 600-page teacher edition are the first books of their kind in the country.
Through hands-on activities, The Architecture Handbook teaches both the fundamentals of architectural design and technical drawing. Students also build knowledge and gain skills through group design projects, sketching, model-making, mapping, research, critical thinking, problem solving and class presentations.
