I was mortified. What a dreadful mistake for a "professional" lecturer to make!! Since I planned to give many more lectures, I came home and bought this book from Amazon.
When the parcel arrived, I quickly opened it and was delighted to find the easy-to-read drawings. Ching makes the most complex architectural graphics easy to see and understand. Using this book, I gave myself a crash course on "basic architectural terms" and since then, I've given 200 lectures and never used the word "THINGIE" again!!

and "The Houses That Sears Built"
is an invaluable reference for the student and architectural practicioner as well.

This book is clear and easy to understand by us non-architects. Concise information is presented in a logical format and broken down into the architectural elements.Published 9 months ago by Valerie S. Jackson
"A picture is worth 1000 words", and this book is pretty much all pictures (actually, illustrations). I'm a real estate agent, and keep the book in my office for reference. Read morePublished 10 months ago by BW
A very well produced book with so many examples of how to draw. Although, the book is a bit redundant due to CAD and other software taking over from this type of mediaPublished 14 months ago by itmo
