Recomented books to read for aspiring Architecture students(for personal statements)?

What books would you recomend to read for those who want to apply for architecture? I need something for my personal statement. Specifically, is there any fiction books that relate to architecture?

i read some non-fiction books for mine last year so i could recommend them if you like but not sure for fiction; i would say dystopian books probably where they describe super futuristic technical buildings, or fantasy books with made up worlds maybe? if youre into movies i think is much easier finding interesting architecture in movies with cgi (even disney/pixar films have really interesting buildings) - its worth a look at 'reeves connelly' design deepdives on tiktok hes quite interesting and might give you some ideas, i think he might have a video on the hunger games buildings
