This book focuses on the exciting possibilities for representing the built environment with techniques ranging from pencil sketching to computers. It teaches students the following skills: how to draw using a range of media, the basic rules of making effective spatial images, and how to express ideas through appropriate media and forms of communication.
Following a brief introduction, the book is divided into three sections: Media, Types, and Places. Each section is illustrated with exemplary drawings and accompanying commentaries. Step-by-step sequences and practical tips will further help students to make the most of their newly acquired skills.
The second edition includes more guidance on basic hand drawing skills, more on a variety of techniques, and new artworks from practicing architects, making it an indispensable practical and inspirational resource.
These measurements can be extended towards the vanishing point and taken below the ground line. This will give the effect of receding into the distance – the goal of drawing an accurate perspective. Measurements should be also be added to the CA before proceeding onto the next step. 3In order to complete the perspective grid you need to establish a series of horizontal lines. However, like the vertical lines, they too will be subject to the vanishing point in a single-point perspective drawing.
this process on the opposite side. You should see a new set of measuring points on the lines that establish the field of vision. Draw lines between these new points and the VPs to create the perspective grid. If necessary these points can be further subdivided to create a more detailed grid. 5The process can be repeated to produce an overhead grid at the required ceiling height and to the sides to create a measuring grid along a wall. This grid defines points in space and allows you to plot
project through a particular lens that brings a singular or small number of aspects of that project into focus. Analytical drawings may follow conventions, such as the use of plans and sections, or be developed as new forms of drawing or diagrams. Diagrams can helpfully reduce complex design problems to their constituent parts, and be used together with other drawings on the journey towards a synthetic design solution. As analytical tools, conventional architectural drawings convey information
