Architecture: Residential Drafting and Design provides comprehensive instruction on traditional and computer-based methods of preparing architectural working drawings in addition to coverage of design and construction principles and methods. It is organized around the design-building process, a logical way for students to easily learn. New content on green building technology/sustainable design complements foundational learning. Chapter-end activities challenge students to use residential design principles and problem-solving skills.
Drafting procedures and chapter-end activities are designed to provide students with hands-on experience with computer-aided drafting and design (CADD) systems.
End-of-chapter features address problem solving, ADDA certification exam preparation, and STEM topics.
Two new chapters cover sustainable design and building sections.
