This handbook focuses on areas which, even in the age of digital media, are still staples of the profession: drawing, graphics, and projections.
Both instructional and inspirational, it covers the basics of landscape--architectural representation in an easy-to-understand way, encouraging readers to draw their ideas and develop their own graphic language and style.
Showcased in these pages are many examples from landscape architecture offices worldwide, offering practical -guidance and ideas in key thematic areas: > Introduction to drawing tools, applications, and effects > Symbols in different scales, styles, and abstraction levels > Basic principles for layout and lettering > Fundamentals of orthographic and parallel projections > Drawing in contemporary landscape-architectural practice
