Besides my AutoDesk Revit Architecture text book (which is not surprisingly horribly dry, despite the actual program being fascinating and very exciting to learn) and Unwin Simon’s Analysing Architecture (which I am thoroughly enjoying), I’ve recently dove into A Pattern Language by Christopher Alexander and it’s pretty wonderful (for an architectural / design junky like me).

“Brilliant….Here’s how to design or redesign any space you’re living or working in—from metropolis to room. Consider what you want to happen in the space, and then page through this book. Its radically conservative observations will spark, enhance, organize your best ideas, and a wondrous home, workplace, town will result”—San Francisco Chronicle.
