While I have a minor in pre-architecture, I want to know more. I want to understand not only what things are called, but how things are constructed, why they are constructed that way, and why things are not constructed in a particular way.
I know the different detail elements of different styles and who started them or where they started, but that is about where my knowledge ends.
What books or magazines would you suggest to further explain the vast world of architecture?
Ok... please people, donít all try to post suggestions at once. There is more than enough time for everyone to have a change to post!
