Neufert's Architects' Data is an essential reference for the initial
design and planning of a building project. It provides, in one concise
volume, the core information needed to form the framework for the more
detailed design and planning of any building project. Organised largely
by building type, it covers the full range of preliminary
considerations, and with over 6200 diagrams it provides a mass of data
on spatial requirements.
Most illustrations are dimensioned and
each building type includes plans, sections, site layouts and design
details. An extensive bibliography and a detailed set of metric/
imperial conversion tables are included. Since it was first published in
Germany in 1936, Ernst Neufert's handbook has been progressively
revised and updated through 39 editions and many translations.
This fourth English language edition is translated from the 39th German
edition, and represents a major new edition for an international,
English speaking readership. Reviews of the Previous Edition: "Neufert's

produced yet again an invaluable reference book." The Architects'
