The editors' effort, dedication, and patience, sustained during a period of over three years, are truly heroic, An astonishing number of hours of input have pro- duced a reference of incalculable value.
I offer the same cautionary advice mentioned in the Preface: If the book is comprehensive reference and support for interior a wonderfully design standards, historical material, suggested plan and design crite- ria, and regulatory limitations, it is not it will never be a subsitute for the inspired, creative design act, for imaginative solutions are always driven by new cultural conditions, programs, and functional require- ments.
So to all you designers: Continue to spin your dreams, but do not stray far from this great resource. Lawrence J. This handbook can be used by the small and medium-size interior de- sign or architectural firm to establish an instant reference library of de- sign data and details by providing a broad selection of detail types and techniques. In addition, the large firm will be able to substantially aug- ment and modify an existing library of details.
Perhaps the most unique feature of this handbook is the vast array of construction and woodwork details reproduced directly from actual working drawings contributed by some of the nation's leading interior design and architectural firms. It is this that makes the handbook par- ticularly useful to the interior designer, architect, and student alike.
This book consists of five sections.
The first, entitled Planning and Design of Interior Spaces, deals with residential, office, hospitality, and retail spaces in terms of the relevant planning, design, and detailing data specifically associated with each. The second section, entitled Construction Details and Finishes, deals with various basic interior con- components associated with most components include partitions, wall openings, wall finishes, floors and floor finishes, doors, ceilings, stairs, fireplaces, and lighting, Details rel- evant to each component have been contributed by practicing interior designers and architects as well as manufacturers.
Information must be useful, authoritative and understandable, with a balance of visual representation and explanation for its integration in design.

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.
The "Silver Bible" — thoroughly revised, updated and redesigned Interior designers, architects, and other design professionals can still turn to the field's beloved "Silver Bible" for a wealth of information related to the design and planning of residential and commercial interiors.
