The Architecture Student S Handbook Of Professional Practice

"In developing The Architecture Student's Handbook, an advisory group of noted professional practice educators and practitioners reviewed the content of The Architect's Handbook to distill the content for students. Some content is taken directly from The Architect's Handbook, some is edited or condensed, and, significantly, unique content has been developed only for students. The Architecture Student's Handbook has a particular emphasis on integrated practice and integrated project delivery, with new content on research and evidence-based design that does not appear in The Architect's Handbook. At least a quarter of The Architecture Student's Handbook content is unique or significantly edited from the professional book."--BOOK JACKET.
