Designers too often write in obtuse terms that make relatively simple concepts difficult to comprehend. But understanding how we perceive, experience, and interpret the spaces we inhabit should not make us feel dumb, or left out. This readable and graphically clear book is a great introduction to design terms, principles, and concepts. Anyone interested in design will learn much from this terrific book.

101 Things I Learned in Architecture School' is a book for professionals and for the interested bystander. Each lesson is presented in a two-page format: art and text. The book is written in direct and unpretentious style, and the drawings are wonderful. In format, approach, and information, this book reminds me of Norton Juster's forgotten 1963 classic 'The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics.'

I purchased this book for my best friend in the world who last month applied to the school of architecture at NCState and was not accepted. She was really sad. I thought this would cheer her up.

Like the book says, it's something good to sit on your desk. It shares some basic principles, diagrams, & ideas that each architect should think about at the beginning of their career & projects. Keep it & look through from time to time. Good to share with some architects that have lost their inspiration or have been producing products for to long with no concept or aspect of architecture. The only thing it needs is blank pages to add notes & other items picked up over the years.
