The drawing architect for centuries, this term was just as tautological as the baking baker. Nevertheless, the acquisition of drawing skills is by no means a minor field of study for architects. Design methodology, also referred to as methodology of space and the representation of the human body, plays a critical role in the current field of architectural activity. This book explores options for illustration and contemporary practice with architectural presentation. It deals with the following topics:
> The history and theory of architectural drawing, covering a wide spectrum of issues in terms of art and architectural history.
> Ten architects present their architectural concepts based on a selection of drawing and presentation techniques.
> Ten exercises for freehand drawing, demonstrating that spatial vision and the ability to think in three-dimensional terms can be learnt by anyone.
> Demonstrative examples and practical exercises for technical drawings
