Overview

Chapters in Architectural Drawing provides an introduction to the fundamental principles needed to create compelling freehand and hard line drawings. Using the graphics, instructions, sketching exercises, and the included videos the reader will learn the techniques used by architectural professionals to visually communicate ideas and create dramatic client presentations.

The content of this book is important to today's high-tech design industry. You will learn what role architectural hand drawing has today compared to cutting edge computer design and rendering software, and how the two can be leveraged to create crisp, clean sketches with an economy of time! Although you will not be expected to use any software to complete this book, you will be introduced to several methods in which these tools are used. In these exercises all the computer work has been prepared so you can focus solely on the sketching portion.

This book takes a unique approach to teaching these invaluable techniques. Throughout the book you will find video symbols. These symbols indicate that a short video pertaining to the subject can be found on the DVD included with each text. In these videos the authors discuss and clearly demonstrate how to perform the techniques described in the book.
