101 Things I Learned in Architecture School



Few days ago, a senior of mine recommended me to take a look at this book. He claimed it is a MUST HAVE for every single architecture students. Well after i google this piece on net, no doubt i will head to bookstore to check it out this coming weekend.

About the Book:
This is a book that students of architecture will want to keep in the studio and in their backpacks. It is also a book they may want to keep out of view of their professors, for it expresses in clear and simple language things that tend to be murky and abstruse in the classroom. (to find out more..)

About the Author:
Matthew Frederick is an architect and urban designer in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He has taught at a number of colleges and universities, including Boston Architectural College and Wentworth Institute of Technology.

Books are not cheap though. Thank Devil, we have internet nowadays! It's a good read anyway but it has no definitive solution to a design problem. As Cesar Pelli puts it, "Each place has a distinct culture and function, which for me requires an appropriate answer."
