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).
