  • Environmental and human design considerations

  • Supplemental step-by-step instructions for complex chapters

  • Five case studies, including two that are new to this edition

  • Hundreds of computer-generated drawings and photographs, including BIM models, three-dimensional models, and full-size buildings shown in virtual space
