This is a comprehensive sourcebook, containing newly commissioned scale drawings (1:5, 1:10 or 1:50) of every type of architectural detail taken from 100 of the best contemporary houses.

Over 700 detailed drawings of walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, and staircases feature keys explaining construction techniques and materials used. Each drawing is cross referenced to other details from the same building. The opening section of the book forms a directory that shows interior and exterior images of the source houses, together with credits, a brief descriptive text and information as to which details from that house are included.
