"Basics Interior Architecture: Drawing out the Interior" aims to provide an introduction to the representation of interior space through drawing and model. It introduces the reader to a range of techniques and methods and describes when and where to use them. Starting with what is meant by interior architecture and why designers draw in the first place, it goes on to explore what one might draw and when. This book is not a manual of graphic techniques but a reference and inspiration to the types of drawing and ways of making images available. It considers the idea that the method we choose to draw with influences the way we think and therefore what we design. With sketches and drawings from Le Corbusier, Iannis Xenakis, Mies van der Rohe, Project Orange and Carlo Scarpa.
"This is a lively little book which redresses the importance of drawn imagery - in its myriad forms, to the process of designing. The format and imagery is well suited to the design student seeking to find new devices to support their design communication." Werner Richter, University Campus Suffolk, UK.
