A good book for Structures..

Hello everyone,
i'm sorry for the odd request.. i'm a student (4th year) in architecture from Rome...
I'm searching for a good book regarding structures' technology and it shouldn't be a drawing one but i'd prefer something explaining the way materials are used in structures nowadays in the contemporary architecture ...possibly containing also mechanical explanation for example comparing mechanical schemes to functional uses.
any suggestions?
thank you

You'd have better luck visiting your college librarian. They'll have a whole room full of relevant books and can probably recommend a few.

(As for me, I have no idea.)
