Book: Architectural Drawing 2nd edition, by David Dernie and published by Laurence King in October

Architectural Drawing 2nd edition, by David Dernie and published by Laurence King in October, focuses on the exciting possibilities for representing the built environment using all the techniques – both traditional and digital – that are now available.

This book teaches students the following skills: how to draw using a range of media, the basic rules of making effective spatial images, and how to express ideas through appropriate media and forms of communication.

Following a revised and expanded introduction, the book is divided into three sections: Media, Types and Places. Each section is illustrated with exemplary drawings and accompanying commentaries. Step-by-step sequences and practical tips will further help students to make the most of their newly acquired skills.

The second edition includes more on a variety of techniques, particularly digital, and new artworks from practising architects, making it an indispensable practical and inspirational resource.

David Dernie is a practising architect and Head of the Leicester School of Architecture at De Montfort University. His previous books include New Stone Architecture (Laurence King, 2003) and Exhibition Design (Laurence King, 2006).
