Digital Drawing For Landscape Architecture


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Combine traditional techniques with modern media for morecommunicative renderings Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture: ContemporaryTechniques and Tools for Digital Representation in Site Design,Second Edition bridges the gap between traditional analog andnew digital tools by applying timeless concepts of representationto enhance design work in digital media. The book explores specifictechniques for creating landscape designs, including digitallyrendered plans, perspectives, and diagrams, and the updated secondedition offers expanded coverage of newer concepts and techniques.Readers will gain insight into the roles of different drawings,with a clear emphasis on presenting a solid understanding of howdiagram, plan, section, elevation, and perspective work together topresent a comprehensive design approach. Digital rendering is faster, more efficient, and more flexiblethan traditional rendering techniques, but the design principlesand elements involved are still grounded in hand-renderingtechniques. Digital Drawing for Landscape Architectureexploits both modalities to help designers create more beautiful,accurate, and communicative drawings in a professional studioenvironment. This second edition contains revised information onplan rendering techniques, camera matching workflow, and colorselection, along with brand new features, like: Time-based imagery and tools Workflow integration techniques Photoshop and Illustrator task automation Over 400 updated images, plus over 50 new examples ofaward-winning work The book takes a tutorial-based approach to digital rendering,allowing readers to start practicing immediately and get up tospeed quickly. Communication is a vital, but often overlookedcomponent of the design process, and designers rely upon theirdrawings to translate concepts from idea to plan. DigitalDrawing for Landscape Architecture provides the guidancelandscape designers need to create their most communicativerenderings yet.

Grading For Landscape Architects And Architects Gel Ndemodellierung F R Landschaftsarchitekten Und Architekten


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

"The contour line is the only precise and accurate means for representing the free and natural formation of terrain in the plan; so learn to use this instrument!" Professor Hans Loidl, Landscape Architect and Teacher The two design elements of landscape architecture are plants and terrain. While the subject of vegetation is well documented by numerous publications, there is a lack of technical literature in the field of grading. This volume fills that gap: History, forms of terrain, basic principles, digital modeling, slope reinforcement systems, construction site implementation, and practical examples – all are treated in detail by the author. Short problems, systematically organized and arranged in increasing order of difficulty, enable the reader to apply what he or she has learned. The exercises are suitable for self-study. Together with the large amount of practical information provided by the book, they also enable architects to become familiar with grading as an important design element of landscape architecture.
