Hey, so I was just wondering if anyone had some suggested architectural reading for the summer. Any help with making a nice reading list would be greatly appreciated!
Aaron C. shared this site with me.
Use this site next time you travel.
Just a reminder! If you guys are looking for prefabricated models for Rhino, you can always go to the Sketchup Warehouse and download it from there and transport it to Rhino directly!! (: its great!!
