Stuck for suggestions for Christmas gifts? Here’s the current list of most commonly shared books between members of the group I started on a little while ago:

  • The most beautiful house in the world by Witold Rybczynski
  • The poetics of space by Gaston Bachelard
  • The Harvard Design School Guide to Shopping / Harvard Design… by Jeffrey Inaba
  • Why buildings stand up : the strength of architecture by Mario Salvadori
  • The death and life of great American cities by Jane Jacobs
  • The Image of the City by Kevin Lynch
  • Site planning by Kevin Lynch
  • An atlas of rare city maps: comparative urban design, 1830-1… by Melville Campbell Branch
  • The timeless way of building by Christopher Alexander
  • Great streets by Allan B. Jacobs

I have no Rybczynski, but do have some Bachelard and I’m currently proposing a trade on the group forum.
