He received his doctorate in architecture from Catholic University. He has previously served as technical editor for Architecture and Progressive Architecture, magazines and is contributing editor to Construction Specifier. Crosbie has won several journalism awards. In memorium John Hancock Callender was responsible for the editorial direction of Time-Saver Standards from to The present edition carries the name of John Hancock Callender in recognition of his lifelong editorial contributions to the knowledge and practice of architecture.
He was researcher in low-cost housing materials at John B. Pierce Foundation from to and served with the Army Engineers Professional and technical reference books for architecture are not easily composed. Information must be useful, authoritative and understandable, with a balance of visual representation and explanation for its integration in design. In the following selections, the jury lauds the accomplishments of the authors, editors and publishers of books that are technically relevant and also inspirational in promoting technical and professional excellence in architecture.

A documentation of human proportion and stature, including safety and accommodation for children and for differently abled. An essential reference for ergonomic design, by the founders of the field. Templer, John. A comprehensive treatment of precedents in stair design and contemporary design criteria, equally diligent in both its historical and technical analysis, including extensive research related to stair use and safety.
Department of Agriculture Forest Service. Wood Handbook. Comprehensive reference for use of wood in construction. In the profession of architecture, knowledge of building technique is an essential and motivating condition. Kenneth Frampton in his history of architecture, Studies in Tectonic Culture, defines architecture as inseparable from construction technique and material culture. This definition anticipates the classification of architectural elements used in Part II of this volume, classifying architectural data in terms of their place in the process of construction and assembly.
It combines the sense of craft and knowledge learned through the act making, that is to say, through empirical experience. Craftspeople gain such knowledge in the skill of their hands and communicate it through the formal accomplishment of their art and craft. This, however, gets us only part way.
Describing architecture in terms of its physical and technological elements does not convey the reasoning and the evaluation needed to guide the designer, the why and how by which particular materials and systems are selected.
The aspiration of the architect or master builder then, by definition, is to gain mastery of the knowledge of construction technology. This is a daunting aspiration, made continuously challenging by changes in construction technologies and in the values, economical, aesthetic and cultural, given to the task by architect and society. It includes in its scope all aspects of design and construction, from details of construction and building to city planning and climatic responses.
MacKinnon provides a frequently referenced study of the ways that architects work, including how they process information, biased either by habit of mind or talent or by education and training. References: References are listed at the end of the first part of this article on the following page.
These reports provide guidelines for an information system for architectural practice, that, although perhaps obvious, are noteworthy. Burnette recommends that an information system for architect should be: a up-to-date, b presented in a form to be readily used, c appear consistently in the same format, d be stated in performance terms, that is, be operationally useful, e accurate and complete, with drawings precise and to scale, f have an evaluation and feedback system. The feedback system provided by the Reader Response Form at the end of this Volume will be especially helpful in improving its publication.
The presentation of information in this edition of Time-Saver Standards is in two interrelated formats, first in Part I Architectural Fundamentals, which give the principles and cross-cutting discussion applicable to many topics and at many scales. In the terms suggested above, fundamentals provide the connecting verbs and qualifying adjectives and adverbs of the grammar of architectural knowledge. It is a classification now widely adopted for buildingrelated design data, first developed as an industry-wide standard for economic analysis of building components.
It defines categories of the elements of building in terms of their place in the construction sequence.
This classification has several advantages. Firstly, it follows the sequence of construction, from site preparation, foundation, and so forth through to enclosure and interior constructions and services. Secondly, it defines design and construction data by system assemblies, creating an easily understood locus of information by its place as a building element, which is most easily visualized and understandable to architects while designing.
In short, MasterFormat is organized into distinct construction material categories as they might be ordered and delivered to a construction site before construction. Uniformat II organizes design, construction and materials data as components and assemblies after construction.
These data are formatted throughout this volume with key images and graphic icons to provide an easily grasped visual reference to the design and construction thought process.
