Architects Draw highlights the most fundamental level of speculative design-freehand drawing. It offers a practical and invaluable way to help students and would-be sketchers translate what they see onto the page, not as an imitation of reality, but as a comprehensive union of voids and solids, light and shadows, lines and shapes.
Professor and artist Sue Gussow skillfully applies architectural language to twenty-five drawing exercises that tackle a variety of forms-from peas in a pod to monkeys, skeletons, dinosaur bones, and the art of Giacometti and Mondrian.

Architects Draw also includes a guide to artists' materials, a visual checklist of quick drawing exercises, and other invaluable information that can be detached from the book for quick reference. This unique course provides a solid foundation for anyone interested in using drawing as a visual language to describe architecture.
