The construction details and associated text provide credible options for the integration of construction and finish materials into interior spaces. The notes and sidebar comments add valuable information to the images and tables.
IGS covers many topics not typically included in interiors reference books. Issues of life safety, detailed interior construction, specialty construction, and basic MEP systems are clearly described. The description and graphics describing interior materials testing are very informative, as are the sections on doors and hardware.
This book is appropriate for entry-level or seasoned professionals, and is valuable for architects as well as interior designers!
I have yet to look up a topic that is not included. It really is the first comprehensive reference for commercial interiors. The sections on systems furniture, carpet, and countertops are particularly well done. There are also color pages of wood veneer species and veneer slicing techniques. I found many, many construction details that we have already used in our construction documents.
Like every other interior designer and architect, I have purchased the other two time-saving standard books, but neither were worth the money. It always seemed that the information was incomplete, misleading, and in some cases, the images were so small or smudged that they were illegible.
Interior Graphic Standards is comprehensive, consist in writting style, and completely readable. The details are so well done that every nuance pops off the page. This book is worth more that its purchase price to me. I only wish I had it the day I graduated from college.
In short, IGS offers an extensive amount of information in one volume. Its like one stop shopping without leaving the office.
Data is cleanly organized. Simple drawings describe connections, patterns and standard measurements. And technical drawings help clarify more complex details. But most impressive is the beauty of the line drawings. The art of drafting has not been lost in the computer generated pictures.
I encourage all Contractors, Designers and Artists to reference this book, whether you intend to design a table, a house or a museum.
I have been a practicing Interior Designer for eighteen years and
I have yet to see anything as comprehensive and remarkable as this book! Even the Architectural Graphic Standards book pales by comparison!
There is a section on Wood Veneers and Flooring with (12) pages of beatiful and informative color plates! There is even a Color Theory (color plate) section that is very useful!
There is so much useful information and reference in this book, that any Designer or Architect should have it close by and keep a watchful eye on it, so that colleagues do not borrow it indefinitely!!
