    Dear knowledgeable sherbros,

    Can any of you guys point me toward a good basic book on architecture that covers basic principles and nomenclature? Or even a book on construction or something along those lines?

    Been working on a bunch of fiction and I thought that it would help a whole lot if I was more informed in this subject.

    They're all probably at the unemployment office.

    i had a roommate who was an architect. it was always impressive when he'd show me his blueprints. you have to be incredibly good at math to design even the most basic of buildings.

    Architects come up with designs. Engineers come up with ways to actually build them.
