DESCRIPTION

Combine traditional techniques with modern media for more communicative renderings Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture: Contemporary Techniques and Tools for Digital Representation in Site Design, Second Edition bridges the gap between traditional analog and new digital tools by applying timeless concepts of representation to enhance design work in digital media. The book explores specific techniques for creating landscape designs, including digitally rendered plans, perspectives, and diagrams, and the updated second edition 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 how diagram, plan, section, elevation, and perspective work together to present a comprehensive design approach. Digital rendering is faster, more efficient, and more flexible than traditional rendering techniques, but the design principles and elements involved are still grounded in hand-rendering techniques. Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture exploits both modalities to help designers create more beautiful, accurate, and communicative drawings in a professional studio environment. This second edition contains revised information on plan rendering techniques, camera matching workflow, and color selection, 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 of award-winning workThe book takes a tutorial-based approach to digital rendering, allowing readers to start practicing immediately and get up to speed quickly. Communication is a vital, but often overlooked component of the design process, and designers rely upon their drawings to translate concepts from idea to plan. Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture provides the guidance landscape designers need to create their most communicative renderings yet.

The author encourages designers to "see by hand" before using digital tools, in order to understand and to conserve the detailed qualities we see in landscape. Through hand drawing, we may capture the temporal nature of landscape that the ... The assigned text for this course is Bradley Cantrell and Wes Michaels' Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture (John Wiley & Sons: 2010).

Digital landscape representation relies heavily on the past, and we attempt to tie past and present together. Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture won the "Award of Excellence" from the 2012 Professional Awards and Student Awards by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). For a hundred years, pencil, pen, markers, and watercolor have been the principal tools of representation for landscape architects and urban planners.
