'Drawing: A Tool for Design' explains how engineers, architects and landscape architects involved in the construction industry use drawing.
Drawing: A Tool For Design is intended for teachers and their students in secondary and further education with an interest in the built environment and design. It is not a "how to draw" book. It illuminates how some designers involved in the construction industry think about drawing and how they use it in their work for design, development and production control. It offers a glimpse of the many different kinds of drawing done by those engaged in architecture, civil engineering and landscape architecture. It shows how different kinds of drawings are useful at various points in the design process. Examples of hand drawing and computer-based drawing reveal what a versatile tool drawing is to understand the world, to shape ideas about it and to shape the world itself.
