Description

This richly illustrated book is a must-have visual study for design practitioners wanting to disentangle various design styles and learn how artisanal traditions can fuse with contemporary architectural and decorative motifs.

Offering a wide-ranging collection of striking, full-colour, detailed sketches and illustrations, including comparison studies, diagrams of traditional patterns and strong geometric designs, this impressive volume shows how recognised signatures and refined systems of proportion work across various architectural styles. The rigorous research for this title depicts examples of architectural illustrations from across Asia, Europe and the Middle East, covering residential, commercial and resort projects. The book describes and illustrates studies of architectural elements, set out by category, such as windows, doors and entries; balconies; corbels and brackets; fireplaces, chimneys and finials; stairs; eaves and cornices; courtyards and loggia; and other decorative elements.

This volume helps to take the guesswork out of the application of traditional detail and concepts, as well as finishes, and their application and blending into contemporary building design, which can lead to satisfying results for highly demanding clients. The magnificent sketches are paired with insightful narratives that provide a clear understanding of what each drawn line and set of patterns mean to the overall design. This sketchbook is the first volume of a rigorously researched series on the practical application of cultural and heritage designs in today's architecture.

Text in English and Chinese.
