101 Things I Learned In Architecture School



This book, written by Matthew Frederick, is one that students of architecture will want to keep in the design studio and in their backpacks. It is also a book they may want to keep out of view of their professors, for it expresses in clear and simple language the things they tend to make murky and abstruse. These 101 concise lessons in design, drawing, the creative process, and presentation--from the basics of how to draw a line to the complexities of color theory--provide a much-needed primer in architectural literacy and make concrete what too often is left nebulous and open-ended in the architecture curriculum.

101 Things I Learned in Architecture School is a book that students of architecture will want to keep in the design studio and in their backpacks. It is also a book they may want to keep out of view of their professors, for it expresses in clear and simple language the things they tend to make murky and abstruse. These 101 concise lessons in design, drawing, the creative process, and presentation- from the basics of how to draw a line to the complexities of color theory- provide a much-needed primer in architectural literacy and make concrete what too often is left nebulous and open-ended in the architecture curriculum. Like all books in the popular and celebrated 101 THINGS I LEARNED book series, the lessons in 101 Things I Learned in Architecture School utilize a unique two-page format, with a brief explanation and accompanying illustration. A lesson on how to draw a line is accompanied by examples of good and bad lines; a lesson on awkward floor level changes shows the television actor Dick Van Dyke in the midst of a pratfall; and a discussion of the proportional differences between traditional and modern buildings features a building split neatly in half between the two. Written by an architect and instructor who well remembers the fog of his own student days, 101 Things I Learned in Architecture School provides valuable guideposts for students navigating the architectural design studio and the rest of the architecture curriculum. Architecture graduates, from young designers to experienced practitioners, will turn to the book as well for inspiration and a guide back to basics when solving complex design problems.


Frederick could have fleshed these out a lot more, but obviously the 102nd thing he learnt at architecture school was that nobody has much time to waste and we will pay money to anyone who saves us some.


The book was such a success, Frederick decided to turn the 101 Things I Learned idea into a franchise, and it now has over 500,000 books in print. To date, he has coauthored, edited, and illustrated six additional books with Grand Central Publishing, including 101 Things I Learned in Business School, 101 Things I Learned in Culinary School, 101 Things I Learned in Fashion School, and 101 Things I Learned in Film School, all released in 2010, and 101 Things I Learned in Law School and 101 Things I Learned in Engineering School, both released in May of this year.

My spin on the topic is more of a reflection on some of the really beautiful lessons that architecture has taught me. Specifically, I explore how ideas I learned in architecture school have carried over into the real world.


These decisions include the food I eat, how I invest my time, where I spend my money, the people I choose to work with, and what I prioritize. I pretty much run through the same exact problem-solving process in the real world that I learned in architecture school. 041b061a72
