Format: Hardcover
I can't really remember where I brought this book, but that doesn't matter as it is a must buy for any Architectural/Construction students. I study Architectural Technology and have bought many Architectural books over the years, but you mostly end up with pretty photos which is great if you like looking at pretty building with out learning anything.

I believe having cross sections and details of the buildings in question is the best way to learn how the building connects together and how it stands (Which is a must if your designing buildings). This book has many beautiful residential buildings as well as images, cross sections and a CD with the cross sections in dwg format for CAD users.

not like most of the architectural books - this book shows photos and detailed architectural drawings of the presented buildings. Fantastic!

Format: Hardcover
A very nicely compiled book with useful details that take you further than an architectural photograph. It definately delivers for how much it costs on amazon (which is cheaper
than any of the other websites and shops- and a digital collection of the drawings is quite useful too. The whole series by Virginia Mcleod is the right balance between
technical drawings and photographs therefore I would reccomend it to any architectural enthusiast.

As a second year student this book has come in very handy and would recommend to any one, and the cd is a lovely tool to have, just enough pretty pictures, but many detailed and relevant plans, sections, elevations and everything inbetween to get a good understanding of the structure.

Doesn't push the boat out either.
