about

Here for the first time in three quarters of a century a series of comparative architectural details is reissued. Once appearing regularly in professional journals, worthy examples of similar building elements by leading architects were one of the most time-tested and fruitful means of improving the practice of architecture. Now for the first time ever, a rare and particularly useful series by 2013 Clem Labine award winner Milton Grenfell, one pairing drawn details with photographs of the built details, has been assembled from dozens of journal issues and bound into one volume. These crisply printed to-scale drawings and companion CD should prove indispensable in the drafting room and vital to the full practice of traditional architecture.
Milton Wilfred Grenfell is a working architect and winner of the 2013 Clem Labine Award. He lives in Washington, DC.
