"The deep value of this text resides in [Hutchison’s] instructive method of transitioning from (largely) color pencil to digital design. This method is applicable to every flavor of architecture and design, and only the most digitally-addicted need refuse Hutchinson’s inviting manual of how to design grandly." ― ArchNewsNow.com

Across the design disciplines, drawing by hand has largely become a lost art. With digital tools at their disposal, the majority of designers create while sitting at their computer screens. Attitudes are changing, however: eager to push the boundaries of their creative processes, and spurred by a sense of being disconnected from their briefs, today’s designers seek a greater and more immediate connection with their projects. There is no better way to stimulate the imagination than by learning to draw what one sees and creating by hand, and in the fluid, living world of landscape architecture, it is particularly important to have an organic relationship with one’s design.

An essential volume for landscape- and garden-design professionals, Drawing for Landscape Architecture argues for the importance of learning to “see by hand,” to visualize large-scale design plans and articulate them through drawing before turning to the digital tools that are so crucial to efficient and cost-effective building solutions. This enriched approach makes for better design, happier clients, and more successful projects. 513 illustrations, 368 in color

About the Author:

Edward Hutchison is principal of his own successful landscape design practice in London. He was previously an associate of Foster + Partners. His drawings have been included in major exhibitions.

Review:

Strongly recommended for professional and academic library Landscape Architecture and Garden Design instructional reference collection, [this book] will also prove to be informed and informative reading for non-specialist general readers with an interest in landscaping their own estates. — The Midwest Book Review

Reintroduces the importance of learning to ‘see by hand’. — Architectural West

[Hutchinson] presents his wide-ranging discussion of drawing over the course of nine sumptuously illustrated chapters. — Library Journal

The deep value of this text resides in his instructive method of transitioning from (largely) color pencil to digital design. This method is applicable to every flavor of architecture and design, and only the most digitally-addicted need refuse Hutchinson’s inviting manual of how to design grandly. — ArchNewsNow.com

. . .a thoughtful manual enriched by a lifelong practice of beautifully crafted drawing. — Choice

Book Description Thames & Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. This essential publication reintroduces the importance of learning to `see by hand', to visualize large-scale design schemes and explain them through drawing, before using the digital tools that are so crucial to efficient and cost-effective building solutions. Combining traditional drawing techniques with those from CAD rendering, Drawing for Landscape Architecture guides practitioners from their very first impression of a site, through concept and schematic design and client presentation to construction and site drawings, concluding with two case studies that show the final result. Just as hand-drawing returns to design courses around the world, this welcome publication celebrates the best aspects of traditional techniques while incorporating them into today's digital design methods.
