Description

This is a complete guide to drawing, perception and analysis for architects and designers. The observation and drawing of real objects are the starting points for the designer's visionary constructions and inspirations. A longtime favorite of architectural students, Douglas Cooper's Drawing and Perceiving: Real-World Drawing for Students of Architecture and Design instills an understanding of the basic principles of drawing that are universal to all design disciplines includingmass, volume, form, contour, texture and shadow - as it explores the knowledge, rational thought, and expressiveness that designers rely on to create successful drawings.

Now including a CD featuring Cooper's own dynamic instruction, this new Fourth Edition combines theory and technique to prepare students of architecture and design to carry on a dialogue between their perceptions of the physical world and their understanding of the elements of design.
