A companion to the Design Drawing, this collection of 60 companion to assignments allows students to develop the proficiency in drawing required during the design process and to experience the relationship between what is being drawn and what is being designed. The exercises, covering both conceptual and representational drawing, help students of architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design master the fundamental elements necessary, for the conception, development, refinement, and presentation of a designed space or object. The methods are direct and simplified, breaking down complicated procedures into easily understood steps.
An essential tool for students and professionals, this book explicates the step-by-step depiction of reality through perspective, shadow-casting, and entourage. The new edition adds chapters on different applications and ways of integrating hand-drawing with computer coloring and lighting. " explains what communicating designers do all the time: They draw to realize a thing that doesn't yet exist. . . . the lessons of light, shade, tone, value, texture, and so on are delightful, simple and clearly demonstrated. Perspective drawing is especially well presented and demystified."--
