This Fourth Edition of the Dictionary of Architecture & Construction defines more terms in
architecture and building construction than any other dictionary in the English language.
Because there have been significant changes, advances, and new developments in building
materials and services, construction techniques, engineering practices, specifications writing,
environmental concerns, community regulations, legal requirements, and other areas over
the last decade, a total of 2500 new terms, as well as 100 new illustrations, have been
added to this edition.
