Art Of Architectural Illustration

Design presentation is the most integral part in the practice of architecture, interior design and landscape architecture. As the saying goes "first impressions last", the architectural illustration is a craft that builds a lasting impression. Ultimately the art of architectural illustration gets the competitive edge for the commissioning of the project.

While architecture defined as an "art and science", architectural illustration is also the "art". The artistry of presenting the architectural proposal is a creative work of art. Combined with hand-sketched illustration and digital drawings, architectural design and architectural illustration works hand in hand in the design process.

The architect can stand out once he created a lasting impression from his unique and impressive design. It will all start with an impressive presentation. This could be the start of something big.

The architect and the architectural illustrator are separate in terms of responsibility for creating a good visual design representation.

Very true Atif! The design should always be unique. In the past, architectural designs are adaptation from past designs, but the trend today is complex that the architecture has become a sculptural statement. It is very advanced. The presentation goes along with it, the combination of motion graphics and other means of digital presentation has also gone that far. Bottom line, It remains an art of architectural illustration.

Very interesting insight Leonardo... the presentation (design) "sells" the project. As you say, it's that first artistic impression which determines if the project will go forward...

Definitely! It is the first step to win the project, but the artistry should always be balanced with the technical knowhow of the design requirement. In my experience, Clients are very keen to that too. They are Well travelled and have seen so much around the world, so the design should be well researched, thought of and must be unique.

When I think of all the great masters, Da Vinci, Newton etc... they where both artists as well as scientist in other words they used both brain half equally which helped to think outside the box and to give their ideas that extra bit of demention. I belive that would be the traits of a grate architecture as well. This is a very interesting piece thanks for charing.
