In an age dominated by computers, in which even drawing has come to be seen as a computer skill, it is vitally important for architects to master the essentials of their trade. This book in the Construction and Design Manual series therefore highlights drawing as a manual skill and thus provides vital background for CAD users. Fifteen acknowledged international practices present drawings done by hand and explain the techniques used in them. A detailed introduction to traditional architectural drawing provides information on the essential regulations. The standard reference for all issues related to architectural drawing and presentation, the book also includes essays by Augusto Romano Burelli, Hans-Dieter Naegelke and Klaus-Jan Philipp.
