Even in the earliest stages of the design process, architects must be aware of the impact that environmental factors, building codes, and structural demands will have on a building. Newly revised and updated, the "rules of thumb" in this valuable reference make it possible to complete preliminary design work without spending too much time investigating technical issues.
