This book views drawing as an inseparable part of the design process - not as an end in itself, but as an important means to architecture. This insistence on the relationship between architectural drawing and architecture transcends the usual emphasis on tools and mechanics, concentrating instead on the advantages and limitations drawing offers an architectural designer.
A comprehensive workbook for practicing architects and architectural students, the book clearly describes and demonstrates the various ways architectural projects can be conceived, refined and communicated graphically. Full size drawings and tissue overlays are used to illustrate the use of drawing in the design process, and to explore the relationship of drawing to architectural design.
The author makes a strong case for drawing as an intellectually developed ability rather than a natural gift, and his own well-defined views on the process, use, and technique of drawing lend the book a special authority as a workbook/guide to the development and intelligent use of architectural drawing.
