Drawing for Landscape Architects 1: Basic Drawing, Graphics, and Projections

  • $ 79.95

Landscape architects rely heavily on graphics to communicate content and ideas. From large-scale master plans and strategic visions, to design concepts and specific moods, through to types of vegetation and ­precise construction details – at some point everything has to be explained on paper. This handbook focuses on areas which, even in the age of digital media, are still staples of the profession: drawing, graphics, and projections. Both instructional and inspirational, it covers the basics of landscape-­architectural representation in an easy-to-understand way, encouraging readers to draw their ideas and develop their own graphic language and style. Showcased in these pages are many examples from landscape architecture offices worldwide, offering practical ­guidance and ideas in key thematic areas: > Introduction to drawing tools, applications, and effects > Symbols in different scales, styles, and abstraction levels > Basic principles for layout and lettering > Fundamentals of orthographic and parallel projections > Drawing in contemporary landscape-architectural practice
