Architectural Drafting

Architectural drawing or architect's drawing

  • is a technical drawing of a building that falls within the definition of architecture. Architectural drawings are used by architects and others for a number of purposes: to develop a design idea into a coherent proposal, to communicate ideas and concepts, to convince clients of the merits of a design, to enable a building contractor to construct it, as a record of the completed work, and to make a record of a building that already exists.

Architectural drawings are drawn according to a set of conventions, which include particular views (floor plan, section etc.), sheet sizes, units of measurement and scales, annotation and cross referencing. Conventionally, drawings were made in ink on paper or a similar material, and any copies required had to be laboriously made by hand. The twentieth century saw a shift to drawing on tracing paper, so that mechanical copies could be run off efficiently.

Isometric Design

What is isometric drawing? In an isometric drawing, as you see above, the three dimensional image can be viewed from the top, side, and front all at the same time. The students learn how to make these types of images both on the computer, as you see above, as well as with freehand drawing techniques.
