Drawing As a Means to Architecture
This book views drawing as an inseparable part of the design process, not as an end in itself, but as an important means to architecture. This insistence on the relationship between architectural drawing and architecture transcends the usual emphasis on tools and mechanics, concentrating instead on the advantage and limitations drawing offers an architectural designer.
