Reading is a vital part of the course, both as part of the course and as part of your personal development as a designer. There are many architectural magazines and journals that are worth reading, such as Building Design, Architectural ReviewThe Architects Journal, Architecture Today and Domus. Some are worth reading on a regular basis, others only occasionally.
