The best architecture is intrinsically linked to a thorough comprehension of architectural technology. The Encyclopaedia of Architectural Technology provides an unparalleled resource on the latest developments in key aspects of this technology, including construction, structures, building services, environmental design and theory of design.

Featuring over 180 entries on subjects ranging from materials and techniques to specific architects and engineers at the forefront of technological development, the Encyclopaedia offers a holistic view of architectural technology. It draws together issues of detailing, design intention, technical specifications and environmental responsibility.

Contributions are included from a range of specialist practitioners and each entry features a quick–reference summary as well as a more detailed analytical text, in addition to suggestions for further reading. A full system of cross–referencing ensures that the information sought is easily accessible.

This book provides an invaluable reference for students and practitioners in the fields of architecture, engineering and construction alike who need to understand the ways in which technology can be used wisely and responsibly.
