For decades the handbook for architects. Neufert's Bauentwurfslehre
The Bauentwurfslehre, continuously updated since 1936, offers fundamental knowledge and all insights required for the detailed development of construction projects. Structured according to building types, it includes planning criteria, functional and siting considerations and provides all data on spatial requirements of a construction project. For the design and planning phase, it is an indispensable tool for all architects.
