The Graphic Standards Guide to Architectural Finishes: Using MASTERSPEC to Evaluate, Select, and Specify Materials
The Graphic Standards Guide to Architectural Finishes: Using MASTERSPEC to Evaluate, Select, and Specify Materials
From ARCOM and The American Institute of Architects

A complete visual guide to choosing and using finish materials

In this unique guide, the authors of MASTERSPEC and Architectural Graphic Standards join forces to offer architects vital single-source access to the unbiased information they need to evaluate, select, and specify the best finish materials for any job.

This powerful visual resource combines hundreds of illustrations from Architectural Graphic Standards with corresponding building material performance and specification information from AIA's MASTERSPEC, published by ARCOM. Use this book during the schematic and design development phases of a project and as an indispensable aid for product selection and specification.

Essential for architects, interior designers, and building designers, this vital reference provides information to make informed decisions about specific design goals, such as affordability, environmental friendliness, durability, fire resistance, and esthetic success. Features include:
* Unique source of independent, in-depth building product performance information-the one source that gives you reliable building product information before you consult with manufacturers
* Covers a full range of standard finish materials and includes selection criteria, details, typical product sizes, and installation and maintenance data
* Provides current standards based on research by government, association, and independent testing organizations as well as the input of experienced architects and specifiers


"Architectural Graphic Standards has served the design community for decades as a virtual 'bible' for architectural detailing. MASTERSPEC Evaluations have long comprised one of the best resources available for building product selection and specification. Consolidating the strong points of both into this new desktop reference is an act of sheer brilliance!"

Detailed View of Pacific Ocean Floor, West of California, showing ancient human constructed habitats
Detailed View of Pacific Ocean Floor, West of California, showing ancient human constructed habitats
Detailed look of the Pacific Ocean floor area, captured in the NOAA version of Google Earth, and color manipulated in Adobe Photoshop. The area is entirely saturated in mega road lines, convergences, King/Queen portraits, Cosmic Egg Pleaides orbs, and geometric/angular alignments. In addition, this image shows two fracture zones running West-East, that I know have been human enhanced. Heavy sediment covers this area diminishing the quality of the articulation, and you have to really focus with heavy eye strain to see the subtle delineations. Best viewed at 200% screen magnification. Depth of the Pacific Ocean floor in this area averages probably -15,000 feet, suggesting an age of construction in the 20 to 100,000 years ago. In fact, with the figures upright that they are, with the crown of the head pointing towards ancient North, and today's modern North, this indicates that this particular figure faced the ancient West of his time epoch, at the exact precessional full cycle of time before today's era. Someone correct me if I am wrong, in my amateur, non-academic research, if the precessional cycle of celestial rotation is 25,600 years in duration, then this constructed image could only have been at exact repititious cycles of that number: 25,600 years ago, or 51,200 years ago!

Serpentine Prairie

Oakland, California



It's hard to explain my fascination with serpentine. It's California's state rock, often but not always occurs in conjunction with gold. It's metamorphised rock from deep on the ocean floor. In California, it's been shoved up to the surface by the push-broom action of the ancient tectonics of the area, back when California had a thrust fault shoving beneath it, rather than a strike-slip fault moving alongside it.

Serpentine, raw like this, is often shiny, and blackish, greenish, or bluish. I have to touch it when I see it. When I see serpentine soil at the side of freeway road cuts, I talk about it. I'm just fascinated by serpentine.

This boulder sits on one edge of the big central plain of the Serpentine Prairie area, in Oakland.

Linoleum
Linoleum is not vinyl!< BR> The word "linoleum" has become a generic term for resilient flooring of all kinds, but it is NOT vinyl. Linoleum is a flooring product made of natural materials, including linseed oil, resins, wood flour, cork, limestone, and jute fabric. This fascinating new book focuses on vintage linoleum; more specifically the marvelous patterns produced from its invention in 1863 until its almost complete eradication in 1960s due to widescale vinyl production. Linoleum is also about the rebirth of authentic linoleum flooring in the past couple of decades, and the hope for a future in which linoleum receives the long overdue respect it has always deserved. < BR> Drawing upon their expertise in restoring and photographing old homes, the authors share the history and evolution of floor coverings generally, and linoleum in particular. With humor and insight, they single out the differing types and patterns of this durable product, discuss its care and maintenance, and list major resilient flooring companies where linoleum can easily be found. This is a must-have collectible book for anyone who ever played with toy cars on grandma's kitchen floor, or arranged their marbles to fit the curious patterns that stretched from corner to corner. < BR> Jane Powell is the proprietor of House Dressing, a business dedicated to renovating and preserving old homes. She is the former president of the historic preservation organization in her hometown of Oakland, California. Her books include Bungalow Kitchens and Bungalow Bathrooms. < BR> Linda Svendsen specializes in architectural interior and exterior photography, and her work has been showcased in Camps and Cottages, Bungalow Kitchens, Bungalow Bathrooms, Old House Journal, Old House Interiors, and Lifestyles Magazine.< BR> (20041201)
