Volume 1: Basic Drawing, Graphics, and Projections

Landscape architects rely on images to explore ideas and to communicate them to others. Their designs range from large-scale master plans and strategic visions, through to specific vegetation and precise construction details. Concepts and creative solutions are developed, refined, and explained on paper.

This handbook focuses on areas which, even in the age of ­digital media, remain foundations 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 sketch and develop their own graphic language and style.

Also showcased in this book are many examples from landscape architecture offices worldwide, offering practical help and ideas.

Key thematic areas include:

-    Introduction to drawing tools, applications,
      and effects
-    Symbols in different scales, styles, and
      abstraction levels
-    Basic principles for presentation, layout,
      and lettering
