The study and practice of architecture demands a working command of architectural drawing as a means of graphic communication. This book documents the step-by-step evolution of a complete set of working drawings, for the student or professional, just the way its done in architectural offices across the country. Progression of the chapters mimics the way an architect creates working drawings, starting with site and foundation plans and progressing through elevations, building sections and other drawings. Ancillary materials include an instructor manual, a study guide, sample digital drawings, and a glossary.
