Design Drawing 2nd Edition was written to help architects and designers mastering the visual language of architecture. It unmasks the basic cognitive processes that drive visual perception and expression, incorporating observation, memory and rendering into a creative whole. The book unites imaginative vision with fundamental architectural principles to cover the traditional basics of drawing, including line, shape, tone and space. Guiding readers step-by-step through the entire drawing process, the book also examines different types of drawing techniques such as multiview, paraline and perspective drawings, and how they can be applied to achieve stunning results. In addition, this edition:

  • Goes beyond basic drawing books by covering the principles, media and techniques of drawing, as well as putting these within the context of what and why designers draw
  • Features more than 1,500 hand-rendered drawings, beautiful illustrations that reinforce the concepts and lessons of each chapter
  • Includes a supplemental CD-ROM that uses the power of animation, video and 3D to support the techniques presented in this book. Includes 12 new modules as well as a video of the author demonstrating freehand techniques in a step-by-step manner.
