Architecture - Drawn

Author: Klaus Jan Philipp Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/08/2020

The two-dimensional drawing with plan layout, elevation, and section is a necessary prerequisite for all building. Perspectives help to give three-dimensional expression to the architect's ideas. In order to convey architecture and to build it, drawings at a reduced scale are mandatory, for the architect as much as for tradesmen and clients. This book recounts the historical development of architectural drawings and thus provides an insight into the fascinating world of this medium. It not only shows plain technical drawings but mainly focuses on impressive inventions of almost artistic quality that surprise again and again. It thus is a convincing appeal to constantly renew ways of drawing architecture and thereby to imagine future worlds.

Die zweidimensionale Zeichnung ist mit Grundriss, Aufriss und Schnitt die notwendige Grundlage fur jedes Bauen. In Perspektiven gewinnen die Ideen des Architekten ihren plastischen Ausdruck. Um Architektur zu vermitteln und zu bauen, sind Zeichnungen im verkleinerten Massstab unverzichtbar: fur den Architekten ebenso wie fur Handwerker und Bauherren. Das Buch erzahlt die Entwicklungsgeschichte der Architekturzeichnung und eroeffnet so einen Blick in die faszinierende Welt dieses Darstellungsmediums. Es zeigt keineswegs nur nuchterne technische Zeichnungen, sondern vor allem beeindruckende, immer wieder uberraschende Bilderfindungen von geradezu malerischer Qualitat. Es ist damit auch ein uberzeugendes Pladoyer fur die immer wieder neuen Wege, Architektur zu zeichnen und so zukunftige Welten zu imaginieren.
