    Useful book for starting arch students

    When I was TA'ing architecture history classes at RISD I told our students that the act of digging through books to look up plans and sections is a useful activity, but now there's a great book for all of your intro arch. history needs:


    Richard Weston's Key Buildings of the 20th Century features clear drawings of 100 important buildings and ships with a CD-ROM containing digital copies of the drawings. The quality of the drawings is not amazing and there's certainly more to be gained from actually digging them up in the library, but if you're in a jam this is a good resource.
