Jonathan Hetreed and Ann Ross have drawn from decades of experience of running their own architects' practice in Bath to update and extend the scope of this latest edition of Charlotte Baden-Powell's APB, reflecting continuing changes in design, construction and practice, incorporating new contributions from consultants and suppliers while retaining the compact scale and lively detail of the original. www.hetreedross.com Charlotte Baden-Powell was trained at the Architectural Association in London. She practised architecture for over 40 years, during which time she identified the need for this book, first published in 1997 and still incisively relevant today.
