In my last post I recommended a book that consists of many small truths about architecture and design. Another book with a similar format is "Understanding Design -- 175 Reflections of Being a Designer" by Kees Dorst. This is a great book! Each page consists of a very short reflections on what it means to be a designer. Many of these reflections contain insights that, on one level, are easy to understand, but at the same time, if taken seriously, has serious consequences on who your are and how you think and act as a designer. Read one reflection per day -- it keeps your intellectual understanding about design "updated"! I strongly recommend this book!
