Annual source book is an indispensable tool for architecture and design facts, including a ranking of the top firms in North America.

“Definitive,” says the American Institute of Architects.

“Indispensable,” according to Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Robert Campbell.

Recently named one of the best architecture books of the year by ArchNewsNow, the Almanac of Architecture & Design is an essential resource for practitioners, professors, students, and the media.

This DesignIntelligence fact book has provided the industry with critical information for over a decade. The publication of the 2011 edition marks the 12th annual imprint.

Most notably, the Almanac presents the DesignIntelligence 333, a ranking of the top design firms in North America based on worldwide revenue, with salient details about each of those firms.

A detailed directory of more than 800 leading architecture and design firms displays firm size and headquarters location as well as the regions, services, and markets covered by each organization. Rounding out the directory is each firm’s DI Index rating.

Weighing it as more than 600 pages, the Almanac of Architecture & Design 2011 chronicles a wealth of vital data: statistics about firms, facts about buildings by type, extensive awards listings, compelling profiles of individuals, and other indispensable information.

Highlights of the Almanac of Architecture & Design 2011:

  • DesignIntelligence 333 ranking of North America’s top firms
  • America’s Leading Architecture & Design Firms Directory
  • Beautiful full-color photographs of America’s notable new architecture
  • Building types directory
  • Salary and compensation guide

 It’s a resource no one in the architecture, design, or construction industries should be without.

“No comparable resource exists,” proclaims Library Journal.
