The Study of Precedents in Architectural Composition: The Art of Measured Field Drawing
Since the Renaissance, architects have sketched and measured all facets of architecture in portable bound books.  Architects have used the sketchbook to record historical artifact in both pictorial representational, three-dimension sketches, and carefully measured drawings drawn to scale.

Course instructor, Stephen Chrisman, will introduce the student to a method of sketchbook drawing that is focused on accurately measured drawings of accessible architectural details, drawn-to-scale in a sketchbook.  This course will emphasize analytical orthographic drawings of plan, section, elevation and profile.  Subject matter for measuring a drawing can range from large-scale urban elements, such as squares, streets, street sections, courtyards, gardens, etc to small details such as doorways, windows, stairs, ornamental stone carving, column capitals and based, mouldings, ironwork, millwork, paving, etc.
