Classical collection of landscape in line drawings
Zhiwei Long, Yanli Hu
AZUR, 2005 - Architecture - 279 pages
Part art, part architecture, this book presents a selection of some 300 line drawings by EDSA landscape architects. The book is separated into three distinct sections for each type of drawing - plan views, where the image is presented as if drawn from directly above, fa ade views, which are, effectively, cross-sections of the design, often incorporating descriptions, dimensions, materials, etc., and perspective views, which present a more three-dimensional effect and are more informal. These intricate drawings are used in the design and tender submission stages of landscape architecture and planning. EDSA (Asian) is one of the world's leading planning and landscape architecture firms, whose repertoire ranges from residential buildings and high-end villas to resorts and theme parks. Their line drawing skills are also extremely highly regarded.
