About this title


Explains the two types of paraline drawings, which are characterized by foreshortening of proportions and changes of angle. Emphasizes oblique paraline projections, in which the actual plan or elevation is used without foreshortening to produce the three-dimensional paraline. Also discusses methods of construction, shadow casting, and exploration and emphasis; and includes a variety of drawings by professional architects. No index or bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

From the Back Cover:

Though used since ancient times, nothing is more contemporary than axonometric and oblique drawings. In the renderings of many of today's finest architects, designers, landscape architects, and artists, axonometrics and obliques express the totality of projects. . .convey a sense of real space. . .and are unsurpassed in their ability to involve the viewer. This expert treatment--stocked with carefully chosen illustrations and examples of today's best work--is the first reference that focuses on axonometrics and obliques, giving them full play and offering them their full due. The ultimate paraline--axonometric--reference for deisgners, architects, and renderers, Axonometric and Oblique Drawing first defines these three-dimensional drawings whose lines remain parallel and do not converge to a vanishing point. Using examples both old and new, as well as line drawings, this indispensable guide then shows artists step by step how to construct and use all types of paralines, from transmetrics to obliques. A hands-on reference, Axonometric and Oblique Drawing shows you exactly how to apply the conventions of axonometric drawing to achieve the information-rich, spatially evocative presentations that have made them such a favorite with architects. It shows you how to: Construct all types of paraline drawings, step by step; Handle circles, ellipses, and irregular objects in axonometric and oblique drawings; Apply shadows and shading; Use axonometrics and obliques to dramatize worm's eye, cutaway, bird's eye, split-segmented, simultaneous, exploded, and other views; Render axonometrics and obliques on vellum, board, mylar, film, tracing paper, and other media; Prepare axonometrics and obliques with computer applications; Analyze designs step-by-step; Ensure quality in the design process through axonometric and oblique analysis; Integrate axnometrics and obliques effectively with other drawings. The only complete guide to axonometric and oblique drawing ever produced, this ideal studio companion offers not only instruction, but inspiration. In addition to its wealth of practical techniques and useful tips, it also features an international portfolio of award-winning axonometric drawings by renowned design professionals, including works of Takefumi, Aida, Anthony Ames, Tadao Ando, Natalye Appel, David Baker, R.L. Binder, DO3 Bryan Cantley, Chung/Yates, Ellerbe Becket, Steven Holl, Mark English, Murphy/Jahn, Pollari X Somol, Alexis Pontvik Arkitekt (Sweden), Resolution: 4 Architecture, Shin Takamatsu, House + House, Ventrui Scott Brown and Associates, and others. When correctly rendered, axonometric and oblique drawings have an unsurpassed ability to convey the sense of a project's physical presence--viewers easily imagine themselves interacting with its shapes and spaces. This book will show you how to create winning drawings that evoke that sense of real space, draw the viewer in, and accurately communicate the feel of projects. In addition, this book answers all questions posed by the challenge of creating axonometric and oblique drawings that are both clear and visually pleasing. ABOUT THE AUTHOR M.
