3.0 out of 5 stars nicely produced and illustrated but few messages you won't already know, 23 Jan. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 101 Things I Learned in Architecture School (Hardcover)
I read some reviews on amazon.com about how architecture students found this book invaluable. For sure, its a nicely produced hardback book, good illustration and clear layout - an image and text on each two page spread, and a lot of the advice seems to wander wildly from big, blue-sky thinking to specifics about US zoning and planning control. Some of the points are just downright pithy too - good architects are old - engineers know a lot about one thing, architects know a little about a lot of things. Overall, I was a tad disappointed - you can read the book in about 10 minutes flat and I think there were maybe two points I hadn't already thought of and was actively carrying around in my 'design-process' consciousness. Maybe this was always meant to be a book targetted for those at US architecture schools, rather than UK ones?
