  2. 2. Architectural Drawing? • architectural drawings are the drawings that architects use in the field of architecture
  3. 3. But When Do We Use It? • After intentions and fundamental requirements of a building are discussed with the client and the architect • And the architect goes home and does his thing, draw and design an amazing design in the form of an architectural drawing sketch to show the client and discuss if it is appropriate
  4. 4. So what's the process? Brief from the client about the design Discussion with the client Consider the budget and site conditions Clients Disagree Initial sketch of ideas and concept plans Clients Agree Developed designs will be drawn When the design is finalized, a specific architectural drawing can be drawn
  5. 5. But Why Architectural Drawing??? • Medium for communication • Guideline for building contractors • Presentation for clients • Documentation of work
  6. 6. Wow!! That’s amazing! So What Are The Parts Of An Architectural Drawing??? Parts of an Architectural Drawing Floor Plan Site Plan Elevation Cross sectional Isometric Axonometric Detailed Drawings

  8. 8. Site Plan • Shows property boundaries • Shows other structures related to the site • Gives an overview of the site of work • Only can be drawn by a licensed professional

  16. 16. But are there any architects and their designs that stand out in history??? • In ancient times, the architects are different than architects closer to the present • Ancient times : Imhotep, The Pyramid of Djoser • Closer to present times : Le Corbusier, his vision of a modern city
  17. 17. What about Imhotep? • He would have trouble filling up a parent occupation form. • He is a architect, doctor, high priest, builder, carpenter, sculptor, so on so forth • Architect of the Pyramid of Djoser
  18. 18. More about the design • Was made as more than a mortuary. • Was made for the facilitation of a successful afterlife for the resurrection of an eternal king • The step pyramid had 6 steps and may be an experimental structure
  19. 19. What's so special about a pyramid with 6 steps • In its time the Pyramid of Djoser was one of the best pieces of architecture in the world • It was designed for the king of Egypt at that time • Its 6 step design was believed to be the foundation of other pyramids
  20. 20. What about Le Corby thingy? • Le Corbusier, he is an architect, writer, painter, designer, urban planner, or in more simple terms : a multi talented artist • An amazing architect because of his ability to envisage the world in a more modern view in his time • Pioneer of urbanism This was his design (what are we doing with our lives???)
