Description

The primary purpose of this research project, titled “Descriptive Geometries” is to produce clear and concise diagrams and instructions demonstrating how to utilize descriptive geometry techniques in architectural drawings and projects. Descriptive geometry can be defined as a set of drawing methods which allow architects to depict complex forms in 2-dimensions. There are two phases to this research project, the first of which involves researching older, existing books which utilize descriptive geometry techniques and translating them into new diagrams which demonstrate how those techniques work and how to use them in an up-to-date manner. The second phase involves showing, through drawings, how those methods can be used in contemporary architecture. This research is important because descriptive geometry techniques are incredibly relevant in contemporary architecture and modern computer programs. However, there are no recent books or publications which explain how to implement these techniques in a contemporary manner. Eventually, the drawings and diagrams I produce will become part of an architectural publication which will clearly demonstrate how to do so, benefitting both architectural students and professionals alike.
