I am a computer programmer for a design company. And some work is
related to the architecture domain.
Another point is I am also interested on the architecture. Every time
when I see the great buildings, nice houses, they are very beautilful,
fantastic. They are art.
So, I want to learn some knowledge of architecture, buildings, etc.
But the question is I don't know where to start with. Maybe books is a
best friend to us.
So, could you recommend some good books to me.
Thank you in advance!
Looking Around by Witold Rybczynski
One of many easily read and erudite books by the same author.
Mother’s House, The Evolution of Vanna Venturi’s House in Chestnut
Interesting introductory essays give some sense of the thinking
surrounding a design. Drawings give an idea of the many ways a
relatively simple architectural problem might be approached.
New Haven, a Guide to Architecture and Urban Design by Elizabeth M.
Gives a sense of the many roots and forces that produce the buildings
in a town.
Architecture: Form, Space, & Order by Francis D. K. Ching
One of many books by Ching that are worth ‘reading’.
