Architecture: an introduction: Main

For students starting out at university


This guide covers resources available mainly at NUS on Architecture and related subjects, and it is a selective list of starting points for scholarly materials. I hope you will explore and play around, like a curious kitten in the virtual library. 

For a fun read of what the role of an architect is, I recommend the wonderful 'A is for Architect: the best of Hellman', published in 1975 but remain ever so relevant today.
