Architectural Drawing Masterclass: Graphic Techniques of the World's Leading Architecture
A study of color renderings from 40 of the world's leading architects, revealing how design visions are transformed into graphic representations. The examples use a wide variety of media--graphite, ink, pastel, watercolor, acrylic, collage, film, and computer- generated images. Each entry includes a biographical sketch of the architect, along with a specifically chosen design. Porter analyzes each design from initial rough to final presentation.
