I read this book in library when I was studying in University of Southern California in Los Angeles and was looking for a book on architecture in real world. I loved it, I bought it many years later simply because I loved to have it in my book collection. It turned out to be a very good buy. The illustrations are great! Ching has a great talent to simplify complicated issues and make them very easy to understand.
