Sketching for Architecture + Interior Design : A Practical Guide on Sketching for Architecture and Interior Design Students
by Stephanie Travis




Overview -
"This is a first-class resource for students who wish to improve their drawing skills. A must for those who want to advance their visual communication" Simon Pattison, York St John University

"...another brilliant teaching and learning recourse by LKP" Nooshin Akrami, University of Bolton

"Extremely approachable - the illustrations are not too polished and should be achievable for most students. Excellent contemporary objects/interiors/architecture used as drawn examples all clearly labelled so that students can research them further. The book is extremely well organized and laid out with clear sections, labels, and discrete tasks" Tom Nelson, Coventry School of Art and Design

Stephanie Travis' new book teaches architecture and interior design students all they need to know about sketching. With the advancement of technology, the debate surrounding hand drawing versus computer-generated imagery has become a hot topic. Having grown up with computers, today's interior design and architecture students are extremely adept at creating computer imagery, but often lack confidence in their freehand sketching skills, or do not know how to sketch at all. Sketching, and the careful observation that it entails, is essential for the successful development of the next generation of designers whether they practice architecture, interior or product design.

Forty-five step-by-step exercises take the student from the simple three-dimensional forms of furniture, to interiors, to complex building exteriors, and cityscapes. Technical topics covered include tools, line weights, perspective, proportion, composition, shading, serial views, and context. Exercises are illustrated with beautiful sketches specially created by the author.

Sketching for Architecture + Interior Design is an indispensable and practical guide for students wishing to master the art of looking and sketching. To quote Travis "drawing is truly a tool for seeing. To draw an object, interior or building, you have to look at the subject in a new way. The sketching process is a means of expanding one's creativity and awakening the senses."
