This is an impressive work by Vladimir Tsvetaev (1891-1937) who was an architect and head of the department of industrial and civil buildings of the Moscow Civil Engineering Institute. The industrialization requires completely different methods of construction. Tsvetaev summed up the technical experience in civil engineering of the first five-year plan and offered systematic material for designing and building. He published calculating for the separate elements of buildings, supporting them with drawings and photographs. The book is divided into sections: industrial buildings, walls and fillings, separate supports, lap lengths, roofs, prefabricated reinforced concrete structures, daylighting for buildings, stairs, partitions, floors, doors, tambours and gates, hatches. The bibliography of the main works used by the author is published and included overall 170 titles.
