    'An extremely useful book - a must-have for architecture students!'

    This is an excellent reference tool containing useful explanations of techniques such as sketch, scale, orthographic and 3D drawings, modelling, layout and presentation.
    I found that this book covers topics of representation that many conventional books do not, for example, the merits of using sketchbooks throughout the design process as well as the importance of conceptual sketches and diagrams. It is also full of inspiring examples of work including images from influential designers such as Steven Holl Architects and Morphosis.
    The author gives advice on which types of materials to use for different effects and there is also a handy reference section on standard paper sizes towards the back of the book.
