Drawing for Landscape Architecture
New in paperback
Sketch to Screen to Site Edward Hutchison 40
Now available in paperback, Drawing for Landscape Architecture reintroduces the importance of learning to ‘see by hand’, to visualize large-scale design schemes and explain them through drawing, before using the digital tools that are so crucial to efficient building solutions. It combines traditional drawing techniques with those from CAD rendering, guiding readers from their very first impression of a site, through concept and schematic design and client presentation to construction and site drawings, concluding with two case studies that show the entire process and final result. Just as hand-drawing has once again become central to design courses around the world, this publication celebrates the best aspects of traditional techniques while incorporating them into today’s digital design methods.
