Description

Axonometric drawing is a key skill for architects as it enables them to draw to scale a complete three dimensional object or building without losing detail to perspective. This course will introduce you to this subject's key skills. Drawn on a grid, the object is projected onto the page, enabling the architect to see how the different elements relate to each other.

Topics covered

You will undertake a variety of practical exercises to help build up your skills and confidence with the technique.

Starting with a set of plans, elevations and section, you will generate increasingly complex axonometric drawings, both analytical and conceptual.

Attention will be paid to how to generate quick sketches from images of interiors and buildings showing them in axonometric presentation.

Who should take this course?

This course is suitable for anyone who has already attended a beginners or introductory course in architectural drawing and would like to improve their skills in this specific area, or for people who have basic architectural drawing skills but haven’t managed to master this technique. 

Please note that this is a computer-free course, all drawing will be done by hand.
