This fully illustrated guide by David Vaughan and Kevin Forseth presents the most effective methods for mechanically constructing architectural plans, elevations, sections, paralines, perspectives, and shadows. All methods are described in basic principles of perspective geometry, illuminating the connection between step-by-step procedures for constructing design drawings and the abstract concepts underlying orthographic, oblique, and perspective projections. Originally published back in 1979, it combines carefully organised learning sequences with the quick reference qualities of a handbook; an excellent reference source for the architectural office or studio as well as an easy-to-follow manual for students interested in 20th Century design.
