Event description

Description

DesignThinkingDrawing focuses on how we use freehand drawing to design and think about urbanism and architecture.

DesignThinkingDrawing showshow to use drawings to generate and explain ideas, as well as how to draw the conventional drawing types of plans at various scales, sections and perspectives. Using topical case studies, a workshop approach is used, working individually and in small groups, undertaking specific design and drawing exercises and presenting to the wider group for review and feedback. You will be guided through design and drawing principles and examples, be shown simple techniques and be helped as you practice them.

DesignThinkingDrawing builds on Peter Richards’ 35 years of reflective practice in urban design and architecture, and his extensive collection of drawings throughout this time.
