The first book of its kind in the country for high school students, The Architecture Handbook teaches both the fundamentals of architectural design and technical drawing through hands-on activities. Students also build knowledge and gain skills through group design projects, sketching, model-making, mapping, research, critical thinking, problem-solving and class presentations. The book integrates architecture throughout all the core academic subjects—language arts, mathematics, science, social science, and fine arts.

A sustainable "green" home serves as the book's case study, while students also investigate 10 well-known residential buildings in the U.S. and around the world.
