Announcing Architectural Graphic Standards, 12th Ed

Wiley announces the publication of the latest edition of Architectural Graphic Standards,the unsurpassed reference for building design and construction professionals. It provides visual representation of materials, products, systems, and assemblies. Meticulous attention to detail in both information and illustration has made this book the “Architect’s Bible” since 1932. This new edition provides an even greater emphasis on the visual by featuring a graphics-heavy format with shorter, more accessible texts, and even more illustrated guidance. New expert contributions expand on the fundamentals of design and construction documentation.

This new twelfth edition features:

  • Up-to-date codes and standards, with over 300 new drawings, tables, and diagrams
  • New coverage of building resiliency, emphasizing the building envelope
  • Material properties and performance analyses, with expanded materials selection
  • Environmental factors including climate, thermal comfort, daylighting, and acoustics
  • Sustainability and Universal Design principles integrated throughout the text

“We are very excited about this new edition of Architectural Graphic Standards,” said Amanda L. Miller, Vice-President and Publisher, Wiley.  “In response to customer feedback, the 12th edition provides a greater graphics to text ratio, a return to the highly visual approach of previous editions. And with the launch of Architectural Graphic Standards Online we are now making expert knowledge readily available and discoverable throughout the architect’s workflow.”

Endorsed by the American Institute of Architects, Architectural Graphic Standards 12th Edition has an enduring and unsurpassed reputation for high-quality illustration, text, and graphic design. For crucial information in a user-friendly format, Architectural Graphic Standards is the go-to reference on building design and construction.

“The 12th edition supports the ways we access and process knowledge—visually,” said Robert Ivy, FAIA EVP/Chief Executive Officer, the American Institute of Architects.  “In doing so, the latest edition of AGS gives new life to what the Editor-in-Chief Dennis Hall identifies as the intent of the first authors to produce a graphic-centric resource.”
