DRAWING FOR ARCHITECTS: BRAKEL’S TWO POINT PERSPECTIVE

Publications, 11.05.2015

Our 3-D image for the new police station in Brakel is featured in a book about Architectural Drawings. “The drawing reflects the ambitions of the project for a police station, which is a “slightly curved brutalist block” that sits on a “landscape with nipples”. […] We made a simple 3-D model, photographed it, and then spent time and love in Photoshop and Illustrator to render it.”

“Immediate and constructive, the physicality of hand drawing, upon which representation formats are based, is a necessary skill needed to communicate ideas in the field of architectural design. Drawing for Architects provides what practicing architects and architectural students need – a technique-based, progression of drawing types and instructions teaching core drawing principles needed to connect drawing with architectural design. Respected architect and author Julia McMorrough outlines issues around each of the types of drawing, showing that the conversations of plan, section, elevation, axonometric, and perspective each have a relation to the kind of design information that drawing makes possible to express. Drawing for Architects explains both the technical and disciplinary importance of drawing and how to enable design creativity and application through its practiced use.”
