Architects’ Data
by Ernst Neufert


First English edition, in hardcover.
Architects’ Data (German: Bauentwurfslehre), also simply known as the Neufert, is an essential reference book for spatial requirements in building design and site planning. First published in Germany in 1936 by Ernst Neufert, its 39 German editions and translations into 17 languages have sold over 500,000 copies. This first English version was published in 1970.
Ernst Neufert (15 March 1900 – 23 February 1986) was a German architect who was one of the first students of the Bauhaus, going on to become chief architect under Walter Gropius in one of the most prominent architecture studios of the Weimar Republic. In collaboration with Gropius, Neufert realized the new Bauhaus buildings in Dessau and the completion of the masters’ houses for Muche, Klee, and Wassily Kandinsky. As well as being well known as the assistant of Walter Gropius, Neufert was an influential teacher in Weimar and member of various standardization organizations, and is especially known for his essential handbook Architects’ Data, which became an architectural library standard across the world.
Architects’ Data provides, in one concise volume, the core information needed to form the framework for the more detailed design and planning of any building project. Organised largely by building type, it covers the full range of preliminary considerations, and with over 6200 diagrams it provides a mass of data on spatial requirements. Most illustrations are dimensioned and each building type includes plans, sections, site layouts and design details. An extensive bibliography and a detailed set of metric/imperial conversion tables are included.

* Condition: Good (with dust jacket protected beneath plastic wraps, general wear/internal ex library markings, otherwise a good copy) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.
