ArchiDoodle: An Architects Activity Book
If you have an interest in architecture and like to draw, then you will find this publication to be a valuable resource. It is organized around a series of drawing exercises or projects that feature a wide assortment of architectural designs. The book does not focus upon how to draw buildings, but upon what design features could or should be incorporated into various structures. Each monochrome drawing in the book is rendered in fine line black pen, but students are encouraged to use other mediums such as pencils, pens, charcoal, or even collage. This well-designed architectural sketchbook will help students think deeply about what goes into the process of building structures, and may even serve as part of a student's portfolio. 160 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
