This is a great post and i would like to hear people’s opinion on this one. So guys, please enlighten us by posting your opinions.
In my opinion,
- Form, Space and Order by D.K Ching is like understanding the ABC of architecture. In this book many concepts used in architecture are presented with use of good examples.
- Design in Mind by Bryan Lawson is another great book. The author has interviewed some famous architects and tried to understand the process of designing in architecture. Mostly, you will find books which deal with the end product of architectural designing (i.e buildings, bridges etc.) but in this book the author has dealt with the PROCESS of designing. It is different in that way from the rest of the books.
- Reading Architectural Magazines is one of the best thing to do to know more about the recent structures.
Hoping to hear others opinion…..
