The Roofs Handbook is a textbook for practitioners of architecture, as well as for structural and environmental engineers who wish to broaden their study. The six chapters examine roofs from the standpoint of the primary material used in their construction, from metal, glass, and concrete to timber, plastics and fabrics. Each set of three double page spreads explains a specific form of construction which is accompanied by drawn and annotated details. Throughout the book, built examples by high profile designers are used to illustrate specific principles. As it is the case in the Modern Construction Handbook the techniques described can be applied internationally.
