Interesting books

We have produced a very short list of books which could provide some interesting and useful ideas and thoughts about architecture, design and town planning. Some of these writings about architecture and urbanism have proved to be the field’s utmost apex. Absorbing these ideas into the notion and service of humanism will produce the results of timeless validity. We hope you will enjoy the reading.
