Umschlagtext: The Art of Architectural Drawing Imagination & Technique Thomas Wells Schaller Buildings always begin as drawings. As concepts on paper, architectural drawings are essential to planning, designing, and executing structures. Conversely, buildings can also inspire drawings. In The Art of Architectural Drawing: Imagination and Technique, Thomas Schaller examines the interdependence of architectural drawing, art, and the built environment. He explores the symbiotic relationship between the fine art of architectural drawing, the artistic nature of standing edifices, and architecture in art. The Art of Architectural Drawing: Imagination and Technique compares various ways an artist can portray a building, from creating images that present proposed actual structures to completing those that convey purely hypothetical concepts. Within this context of graphic response to architectural ideas, Mr. Schaller distinguishes between art, architecture, drawing, illustration, and design. This thought-provoking volume is far more than a how-to book. While it covers many of the technical aspects of rendering architecture, it is primarily an examination of the creative impulse involved in its design. Looking to the future of architecture through the lens of the past, Schaller explores the artistic processes of Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as many top contemporary architects. This book encompasses history, theory, technique, and perception in architectural drawing. From the moment of its conception, the author seeks to discover the creative impulse behind the image. Part I, Evolution of Technique, investigates the materials and techniques architectural illustrators use to depict architecture, from the pencil to the computer keyboard. Part II, Architecture of the Imagination, studies the evolutionary and cognitive process of architectural artwork, and examines the utopian visions of architects such as Piranesi throughout history. This book showcases a unique collection of beautiful black and white drawings, with over 50 stunning color illustrations. Renderings of both historic and contemporary architecture will delight as well as inform the reader. The author, whose text is as carefully crafted as his architectural drawings, is one of this countrys most recognized and respected architectural artists. His lucid, engaging, and readable text will teach and inspire the artist in all designers, making this book a must-have reference for the professional and student architect.
