Drawing from the Model: Fundamentals of Digital Drawing, 3D Modeling, and Visual Programming in Architectural Design
Drawing from the Model: Fundamentals of Digital Drawing, 3D Modeling, and Visual Programming in Architectural Design, this book has published texts that focus on the role of responsive technologies in architectural design and educational pedagogies. The author is Frank Melendez who is an architect and educator practicing in New York City.
The content of this book has consisted of the introduction of using digital tools and a computing process for methods of creating architectural design drawing and 3D models in terms of concepts of digital tools, techniques, and workflows for producing architectural design drawings and modeling. The overall content is explaining background, overview, and principle of computation process in each issue with example result of architecture and method of workflow techniques in digital tools. Examples of method techniques are 2D vector based on software Adobe Illustrator, 3d software Rhino and Grasshopper, and physical computing with microcontroller based on Arduino board.
This book of Frank Melendez is integration of current and coming future computer technology in broad and varied perspectives which impact the architectural design process and concrete output through digital tools and computational processes including kinetic system creation in architecture. Impact of computer technology in this book is considered as digital disruption as leads to new working process for designer and architect.
