I always thought that every building that i saw was a piece of architecture in it’s own way but after reading section #1 of Frank Ching book, I realize that there is a difference between architecture and building construction. Architecture talks to us and is thought provoking.

Generally i would know if i learned something from a reading  if i can apply it to something.  To make sure that i learned an important concept in a reading i usually annotate the important information provided in the reading and review the reading.
