Envisioning Architecture: An Analysis of Drawing
Examples of world-renowned masters of architecture are used in this enlightening book that explores the "why" of architectural drawing, rather than the "how." By emphasizing the value of drawing over technique, the authors demonstrate how the drawing itself influences the designer's processes of thought, and exerts its own pull on the evolution of the concept.
