Computer graphics plays a major role in the architecture profession. For example, modeling and rendering systems have proven to be invaluable aids in the visualization process, allowing designers to walk through their designs with photorealistic imagery. However, computer graphics techniques are typically employed at the conclusion of the design process. In fact, most of the artistic and intellectual challenges of an architectural design have already been resolved by the time a designer sits down in front of a computer.
We recently introduced a sketching paradigm that is aimed at the early stages of design. Our approach utilizes a projective representation of points, i.e. points that lie on the surface of a unit sphere centered at the viewpoint. This representation offers the advantage of not having to disambiguate and dimension a 3D model, and it is significant because it allows pseudo-3D interaction with a 2D model created with the ease of pencil sketching. We are currently developing a sketch-based modeling system that facilitates an easy back-and-forth between 2-D and 3-D representations as well as interaction with a novel combined representation.
Are you new to the urban sketch scene or want a refresher on the fundamentals? Well, the free Urban Sketching 101 guide covers everything there is to know, including what it is, where to go and starter techniques and tips for the urban sketcher on the go.
What urban sketching really is, is making sketching a daily part of your life, so that your creativity and your art-making becomes folded into all that you do. When you look through the pages of your sketchbook, you see your explorations, memories, creative moments and artful adventures all in one place. A diary of your artistic journey.
What could make you feel even more present in a moment than capturing it in a sketch? Certainly not snapping a quick photo or selfie and moving on. With urban sketching from life, you get to tell a story in the moment, recording your own unique artistic impression.
For starters, knowing which materials you want to use is easy. Basically, choose some of your favorites, and go, go, go! From choosing a favorite art journal, to working with watercolor or just pen and ink, find what works with your needs, and get to sketching.

Architectural drawing is changing because architects today draw with computers. Due to this change digital diagrams employed by computational architectural practices are often emphasized as powerful structures of control and organisation in the design process. But there are also diagrams, which do not follow computational logic worth paying attention to. In the following I will investigate one such other kind of diagram, a sketch diagram, which has a play-like capacity where rules can be invented and changed as you go. In that way, sketch diagrams are related to steered indeterminacy and authorial ways of directing behaviour of artefacts and living things without controlling this behaviour completely. I analyse a musical composition by John Cage as an example of a sketch diagram, and then hypothesize that orthogonal, architectural drawing can work in similar ways. Thereby I hope to point out important affordance of architectural drawing as a ¬hybrid between the openness of hand-sketching and the rule-basedness of diagramming, an affordance which might be useful in the migrational zone of current architectural drawing where traditional hand drawing techniques and computer drawing techniques are being combined with each other. 2b1af7f3a8
