Books on visualizing design ideas are about the process of designing the building. The recommendations of these books will help students to extend their conceptual design skills into drawing. These books describe the process and techniques of visualizing architectural predesign and design information in the dual sense of converting that information into graphic images and of seeing or understanding the information better.
The first book, Drawing for Architects by William J. Adams, was published by the American Institute of Architects in 1952. It describes the process of architectural design by means of a series of drawings. Many of the drawings in the book are labeled from A to J to show how they are organized and sequential, while others are merely numbered in the order they appear. The organization of the book is similar to the organization of the inner workings of the mind. Adams uses the example of a pianist to illustrate that you cannot hear a melody unless you have learned the key to the instrument. Other drawings in the book include a watercolor of a model and a perspective drawing of a model. For each drawing, Adams describes its purpose, the order in which it should be executed, and the problems that it is designed to solve. The book was well received when it was published. The drawings in the book were not too detailed, and the organization was thought to be clear and effective. At the time, Drawing for Architects was the most popular book on the subject of architectural drafting.
One of the first books on design was published in 1951 by the British architect and writer E. Gordon Craig, who argued that the understanding of human architectural design space is not dependent upon the ability to draw, but upon the ability to analyze spatial relationships. For him, understanding the design space required the capacity to recognize the relationships between the space and the objects in it. In his words, we should be able to recognize the influence of the objects on the space.
