Book Description

This book explores the important relationship between the way we see and the way we draw architectural ideas.

It also addresses new forms of drawing provided by new technological aids such as animated computer graphics and virtual reality. It provides a comprehensive text for students of architecture, interior design and landscape architecture.
Tom Porter is a best selling author of graphics books for designers.
