Buy a book, written by Palladio, Vitruvius, Vignola or Thomas Chippendale, (Dover press is a great source) copy, trace and free hand every plat, and plate in each one, as many times as you can stand it. Compare it to the drawings you have done from the previous posts, look for common themes between nature and the derived objects man has made. After all this you will start thinking as a architect or engineer (depending on how deep you dive into language of mathamatics). The pryor post about Degas is correct, but did'nt include the fact that Degas played with his architecture in the paintings while keeping true to the human form of the subjects inhis later works and was the inverse of his early works. If you live close to Phildelphia PA, the museum of art has the largest collection of Degas on display
