Publisher Comments:

The essential design companion-now in an up-to-date new edition

For architects, drawing is more than a convenient way to communicate ideas; it is an integral part of the creative process that has a profound impact on thinking and problem-solving. In Graphic Thinking for Architects and Designers, Third Edition, Paul Laseau demonstrates that more versatile and facile sketching leads to more flexible, creative approaches to design challenges. To encourage this flexibility and stimulate graphic thinking, he introduces numerous graphic techniques that can be applied in a variety of situations. He also helps readers acquire a solid grasp of basic freehand drawing, representational drawing construction, graphic note-taking, and diagramming.

Important features of this new edition include:

* Easy-to-understand discussions supported by freehand illustrations

* A new format with superior representation of techniques and concepts

* Dozens of new and updated illustrations

* Extensive coverage of new technologies related to the graphic thinking process

For architects and students who want to maximize their creativity, Graphic Thinking for Architects and Designers is a valuable tool in the pursuit of architectural solutions to contemporary design problems.

Book News Annotation:

Lesau (architecture, Ball State University) demonstrates the relationship between drawing, on the one hand, and architectural thinking and creativity, on the other. He then introduces versatile graphic techniques which encourage flexibility. Instruction is offered on freehand drawing, representational drawing construction, graphic note-taking, and diagramming. Written for students and architects, the book focuses on basic skills, their applications, and their role in effective communication.

Synopsis:

Hier ist sie endlich - die langersehnte überarbeitete 3. Auflage des Klassikers in neuer Aufmachung: mit Hunderten neuer Illustrationen und neuen Technologien im Bereich 'Graphic Thinking' (bildhaftes Denken). Komplett aktualisiert, mit Computeranimationen für digitale und andere Kommunikationsmedien. Diskutiert werden u.a. folgende Themen: Grundlagen für Freihandzeichnen, Fertigen von Symbolzeichnungen, Notizen in Bildern und Diagrammen - alles im Kontext moderner Architektur und aktuellem Design.
Der Begriff 'Graphic Thinking' beschreibt, welche Tools, Zeichen- und Skizziermethoden Architekten und Studenten verwenden, um eine Designlösung zu finden. In der Architektur wird diese Form des Denkens im allgemeinen mit der Entwurfsphase eines Projektes assoziiert - ein Zusammenspiel von Denken und Skizzieren. (y09/00)
