design history? good books

I realize, after working with some pretty amazing designers, that i know nothing about design history, or even architecture/modern art history…movements, pioneers, buildings, products…

aalto, lowey, papanek, eames, bucky fuller, morrison, art deco, post modernism, graves, ron arad, gehry, etc etc…

People I work with drop all sorts of names, movements, architects, famous buildings, and I’m embarrassed to ask what is what.

can anyone recommend some good books, websites. This was never taught very well at my university…apparantly people were doing amazing stuff before stark and karim…

Thanks
