Tools and Techniques for 2D and 3D Representation
Mo Zell - All books by this author

High school and college students who have a budding interest in architectural design will value this book for its solid foundational orientation and instruction. Author Mo Zell introduces readers to architecture’s visual language, showing them how to think spatially and getting them started in architectural drawing with a series of instructive tutorials. Presenting three-dimensional design problems, she coaches students through the fundamentals of proportion and scale, space and volume, path and place, and materials and textures. A series of 40 work units covers virtually every aspect of architectural drawing, including—
  • Learning to see and sketch with accuracy
  • Developing fundamental drawing and modeling skills
  • Mastering subjective representation and rules of perspective
  • Employing spatial strategies: rendering and diagramming ideas
She concludes with practical advice for young people who are considering careers in architectural design, offering ideas on building a portfolio, getting advanced training, and continuing on a path to a professional career. More than 800 instructive illustrations.

From the reviews:
“Are you or your child interested in architecture? Is this a possible career choice? Whether just an interest or looking into architecture as a possible career, this book will be of interest to you. … [Mo Zell] does a great job of discussing what architecture really is, the tools used and what architects need to know (yes, you need to know algebra, geometry and calculus and you need to be good at drawing and creativity.) … While this is a paperback book with only about 140 pages, it sure packs a lot of useful information. When finished with this book, you will know if you are cut out for architecture or not!”
—Jo Dee Soles, Practical Homeschooling, November/December, 2008
