Concise lessons in design, drawing, the creative process, and presentation.

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, making concrete what too often is left nebulous or open-ended in the architecture curriculum.

Each lesson utilises a two-page format, with a brief explanation and an illustration that can range from diagrammatic to whimsical.

Written by an architect and instructor who remembers well the fog of his own student days, 101 Things I Learned in Architecture School provides valuable guideposts for navigating the design studio and other classes in the architecture curriculum.
