The Story of Buildings is a must-have for anybody who wants to be an architect — or anybody who just loves buildings.
Loaded with cool building cross-sections, the book covers everything its subtitle says: “From the pyramids to the Sydney Opera House and beyond.” I ran an advance copy of the book by an architect I know, and he gave it two very enthusiastic thumbs up. It’s being published in March, but you can preorder your copy HERE.
