The Metric Handbook is the major handbook of planning and design information for architects and architecture stents. Covering basic design data for all the major building types, it is the ideal starting point for any project. For each building type, the book gives the basic design requirements and all the principal dimensional data, and succinct guidance on how to use the information and what regulations the designer needs to be aware of.

As well as building types, the Metric Handbook deals with broader aspects of design such as materials, acoustics and lighting, and general design data on human dimensions and space requirements. The Metric Handbook provides an invaluable resource for solving everyday design and planning problems.

Pamela Buxton is a freelance architecture and design journalist. She has contributed to many national newspapers, consumer magazines and trade publications incling the architecture publications Building Design and RIBA Journal.
