THE ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING BOOK: A SURVEY OF DRAWING FROM PREHISTORY TO THE PRESENT. Duncan McCorquodale. Artifice Books on Architecture, London, 2017. 192 pp. 24 x 20 cm. ISBN 9781908967510 In English.
Due date: Delayed/January 2017. Publisher's description: The book comprises an overview of drawing and architecture-related imagery, as well as key texts in the field throughout history, and touches on subjects such as developments in technology and their impacting on both the methods and manifestations of drawing. The book considers various forms of architectural representations and projections such as plans, sections, perspectives and exploded axonometrics. It also explores the impact of the computer on drawing and current debates, taking place between practicioners of analogic and electronically-assisted methods of drawing. The extensive breadth of figures touched upon extend from Primitive man Vitruvious, Alberti, Da Vinci, Serlio and Piranesi, through to Choisy, John Soane, El Lissitzky, Wright, Le Corbusier, P Eisenman, Contants, James Gowan, Ted Cullum, to name but a few. Architectural Drawing also takes into account sources of drawing that are not directly a part of architectural discourse but that can be seen as related or indebted to it, such as engineering, fashion or art. In the latter context the publication looks at the work of Mary Miss, Gordon Matta Clark, Dan Graham, Rachel Whiteread and Paul Noble amongst many others.
