From Seeing to Painting - An Analysis on the Characteristics of Pen Drawing Education at Chinese Architectural Universities
One of the import functions of pen drawings for designs is to take our design ideas onto a piece of paper so that we can look at it in a different way, and re-consider it after self-examination. Just like playing a piece of music with different musical instruments gives people different impressions, different drawings for a design make people have different understanding toward an design idea. This paper introduces to the readers how to deliver an image via pen in architectural design, including through intuitive picture representation, thoughts-oriented picture representation, communicative picture representation, and how to apply the method throughout the whole designing process.
