"101 Things I Learned in Architecture School" is, as its name suggests, a dash through 101 tips for being an architect, from how to draw a line best, to how to conceptualize design problems.

Each spread in the book contains an image or illustration on the left, and a pithy statement on the right, which makes for a fun reading experience. But don't expect much depth, as the book breezes by rather quickly. ( )

Recommended reading for anyone. Offers wisdom with good basic knowledge about architecture, which is, after all, our surroundings.

This is s small art book. It has 101 drawing and 101 simple ideas. It is not just about architecture: there are many ideas you can apply to anything. For instance idea 48, which says:
"If you can't explain your ideas to your grandmother in terms that she understands, you don't know your subject well enough." One of these books that makes you smart. ( )

I enjoyed this - a pithy way to find out what kinds of things people learn in architecture school without paying all that tuition. ( )

101 THINGS I LEARNED IN ARCHITECTURE SCHOOL is a book that students of architecture will want to keep in the design studio and in their backpacks. It is also a book they may want to keep out of view of their professors, for it expresses in clear and simple language the things they tend to make murky and abstruse. These 101 concise lessons in design, drawing, the creative process, and presentation--from the basics of how to draw a line to the complexities of color theory--provide a much-needed primer in architectural literacy and make concrete what too often is left nebulous and open-ended in the architecture curriculum.

Like all books in the popular and celebrated 101 THINGS I LEARNED® book series, the lessons in 101 THINGS I LEARNED IN ARCHITECTURE SCHOOL utilize a unique two-page format, with a brief explanation and accompanying illustration. A lesson on how to draw a line is accompanied by examples of good and bad lines; a lesson on awkward floor level changes shows the television actor Dick Van Dyke in the midst of a pratfall; and a discussion of the proportional differences between traditional and modern buildings features a building split neatly in half between the two.

Written by an architect and instructor who well remembers the fog of his own student days, 101 THINGS I LEARNED IN ARCHITECTURE SCHOOL provides valuable guideposts for students navigating the architectural design studio and the rest of the architecture curriculum. Architecture graduates, from young designers to experienced practitioners, will turn to the book as well for inspiration and a guide back to basics when solving complex design problems.
