    • Sketching Professor Lawrence Kuper© ACH 111- Architectural Design 1
    • Why?
      • To quickly get ideas out of your head and on to paper, so you can remember them later
      • To capture a particular image or mood
      • To express your ideas to others
    • Why?
        • Architecture - Express design concepts quickly before they become concrete hard-line drawings
    • Why?
        • Interior Design – Create expressive view of the different components of a space
    • Why?
        • Landscape Architect – To convey concepts to clients and study possible solutions
    • Why?
        • Construction Management – To describe specific details of a problems or opportunities on the job site to the architect or subcontractors.
    • Ideas about Sketching
        • Remember that sketching can be done nearly anywhere at anytime.
        • True sketches do not have to be “photo-realistic”, sketches are drawings that describe ideas and moods.
          • Your hand is not a drawing machine, it will need training.
          • Your sketching will improve over time; never remove anything from your sketch book as this reduces your ability to see the progress that is being made.
    • Tools
        • Sketchbook
          • Use your Mistakes to Correct your Mistakes - Never Erase
          • Keep everything you sketch - Never Remove Pages
          • Always Free Hand - Never Hard-line

        • Flat Lead Pencil
          • Soft-Lead; 4b, 6b, 8b

        • By varying the pressure on the pencil, different densities can be made
        • By varying the angle of the pencil, different widths of lines can be made

    • Let’s Get Started – Contour Drawing
      • Contour drawing is drawing the outline.
        • This is to focus only on the overall shape of the object.
        • main reason of the drawing is to define the proportions
        • Minimal detail will be represented
        • main reason of the drawing is to define the proportions
      • Select a single viewpoint and stick to it.
        • Sit so that they can reach there paper with minimal movement.
        • Always have their head in the same place whenever they look at the object
          • This will keep the shapes in the same locaton at all times
          • small movement = big differences
