The Book of Drawings + Sketches: Architecture

By Chris Van Uffelen



As computer aided design becomes ever more prevalent, the handmade drawing is going through a Renaissance. In its characteristic touch it often shows much more clearly which aesthetic impression the planned building finally leaves behind than any number of computer aided visualization techniques. This volume unifies the most varied painting and drawing techniques, counterposing realized drafts to photos of the execution, so that the viewers can recreate for themselves the connection between architectural will and effect.
