Interior Design Drawing

Alan Hughes
Interior design is a multidiscipline profession blending spatial, technical and aesthetic knowledge. The skill involved in manipulating these elements to solve specific design problems is intrinsically linked to drawing. Interior Design Drawing explores all aspects of this vital design skill, from sketching to record information, through orthographics and development to analyse the problem, to presentation drawing to communicate the solution.
