My architectural perspective shortcuts e-book

Post by majid » Fri Oct 09, 2020 3:12 pm

Hi mates,
As some of you may know, I belong to what I call it "transition generation" of architects; wax of hand skills and wane of CAD software and some of us who were lucky enough acquired both skills. While the design process is almost the same as the past but the tools have changed during the past 2 decades. We -I and my colleague- are going to share our design process experiences through a set of e-books and the "Architectural perspective shortcuts" is the first in a row.
It has been a while that we've been busy working on our first book that is aimed to prepare the reader for proper and faster sketching. In this book, we are sharing our tips on perspective. As many of you may know the architectural perspective process is time-consuming and somehow complicated. We, during years of drawing accurate or intuitive perspective drawing drills in our practice, have attained some "short cuts" that are sharing them with the reader. So the book is not a "bible", "principal book" nor a "practice book" -while includes several exercises- and is simple and practical, so that stands on the verge of being "intuitive" in one hand and "technical" on the other hand.
To describe more I must add that to accelerate the sketching, we have simplified and dropped some perspective drawing process steps and instead, have replaced some "tricks", based on basic geometry knowledge or daily observations to keep it still acceptable and valid.
I am not going to describe more and hope the readers -that might be anyone who is gonna make a 3d images, including architects, designers, and painters- find it a really hand tool.

Thanks mate!
This worths a lot to me!
While we believe that have tried to do a smart job on simplification of the process, by the way, please give me your feedbacks to push it further.
I hope you find it handy.

My colleague -and the book co-writer- who is a really talented architect also benefits sketching extensively. Here are some of her sketches:
