Someone asked about books for a HS student interested in architecture
(sorry I didn't save your message). My son, a senior in the university's
architectural program, recommended the following:

A PATTERN LANGUAGE, by Christopher Alexander. Philosophy of
architecture. Other books by same author -- LINZ CAFE and TIMELESS WAY OF
BUILDING.

LOOKING AROUND, by Witold Rybczynski. A collection of short essays
on a multitude of observations on architecture.

THE GOOD HOUSE; CONTRAST AS A DESIGN TOOL by authors Jacobson,
Silverstein and Winslow. Useful architectural design theory.

PLACES OF THE SOUL, by Christopher Day. Covers a broad scope of
ideas in architecture.

Hope this helps.
