Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why the airbrush is an ideal tool for presenting architecture, and how to use it. The Airbrush, considered a technically daunting instrument, renders mass, volume, light, color, and surface more accurately and elegantly than the customary presentation tools of architects and interior designers. But it offers rich effects worth using, even in the computer age. This book dispels common misconceptions and gives instructions for mastering the technique.

Book News Annotation:

The authors, who formerly team-taught architectural design and drawing at Florida A&M U., agree that many of today's computer- aided architecture students lack observational drawing skills. They treat airbrush as a medium that fosters such. The book includes a glossary, brief descriptions of the processes used to create the featured student images, technical appendices, and a list of US and UK manufacturers and suppliers. Illustrations, which accompany technique examples and exercises, are by Sue Goodman.
