THE COMPLETELY REVISED EDITION

TO MASTERING THE VISUAL L ANGUAGE

OF ARCHITECTURE

In his distinctive graphic style, world-renowned author and architecture educator

Francis D.K. Ching takes us on another exciting journey through the process of

creation. In Design Drawing, Second Edition, he unmasks the basic cognitive

processes that drive visual perception and expression, incorporating observation,

memory, and rendering into a creative whole. This new edition unites imaginative

vision with fundamental architectural principles to cover the traditional basics of

drawing, including line, shape, tone, and space. Guiding the reader step-by-step

through the entire drawing process, Design Drawing, Second Edition also examines

different types of drawing techniques such as multiview, paraline, and perspective

drawings—and how they can be applied to achieve stunning results. In addition,

Design Drawing, Second Edition:

■ Goes beyond basic drawing books—Ching not only covers the principles, media,

and techniques of drawing, but also places these within the context of what and

why designers draw

■ Features more than 1,500 hand-rendered drawings—beautiful illustrations that

reinforce the concepts and lessons of each chapter

■ Includes a supplemental CD-ROM—viewers will gain a greater appreciation of the

techniques presented in this book through the power of animation, video, and 3D

models. Twelve new modules are included, as is a video of the author demonstrating

freehand techniques in a step-by-step manner

For professional architects, designers, fi ne artists, illustrators, teachers and students alike,

this all-in-one package is both an effective tool and an outstanding value, demonstrating

concepts and techniques in a visually stimulating format that transcends comparable

works in the fi eld.

FRANCIS D.K. CHING is Professor Emeritus of Architecture at the University

of Washington. He is the author or coauthor of numerous architecture and design

books, including Architectural Graphics; Architecture: Form, Space, and Order; A

Global History of Architecture; Interior Design Illustrated; and Building Construction

Illustrated, all from Wiley.

200 / DRAWING SYSTEMS

DIMETRIC PROJECTION

A dimetric projection is an axonometric projection of a three-
dimensional object inclined to the picture plane in such a way
that two of its principal axes are equally foreshortened and the
third appears longer or shorter than the other two.

To better visualize this, construct a dimetric projection of a
cube in the following manner.

• Establish a fold line parallel to a diagonal in a plan or
elevation view of the cube.

• Project the cube into the auxiliary view.
• Construct a second fold line that is not perpendicular to a

diagonal in the auxiliary view of the cube.
• Project the cube into the second auxiliary view.

In developing a dimetric projection of a cube, we find that an
infinite number of views and pictorial effects are possible.
A series of symmetrical views develops as the cube rotates
about a horizontal axis. Another series of asymmetrical views
emerges as the cube rotates about a vertical axis. Depending
on the orientation of the cube to the picture plane, a dimetric
view can either emphasize one major set of planes while
subordinating the other two, or emphasize two major sets of
planes equally while subordinating the third.

PREFACE TO THE CD-ROM

What’s on the CD
In order to use drawing as a tool for visualizing,
exploring, and communicating design ideas, we must
understand the pictorial language of drawing. The
CD-ROM that accompanies this book facilitates
further exploration into the relationship between a
three-dimensional subject and its two-dimensional
representation in a drawing. With the benefit of three-
dimensional animations, video clips, and explanatory
audio, the modules on this CD-ROM elucidate the
principal projection systems and drawing techniques in
a way that is not possible on the printed page. Added
to this second edition are short videos of sketching
on location. In many ways, this CD-ROM represents an
experiment in communicating design drawing concepts
and techniques and we welcome any feedback, which we
encourage you to forward to the publisher.

Special thanks go to Nan-Ching Tai, who was responsible
for developing, executing, and greatly improving the
animations from the first edition.
