mario salvadori's Why buildings Stand Up is a clearly and intelligently written book that describes the basic types of construction using classic examples, from brunelleschi to nervi to buckminster fuller. I remember reading it the summer after high school and loving it, occasionally witty, and always easy to understand . can buy it on line, but it easy to find at a borders or B&N ( he also wrote Why Buildigs Fall Down,but haven't read that one...)
