To convey an emotion.
Whether historical or contemporary, architectural illustration plays a key role in architecture. It allows architects, brands, and agencies to communicate their vision and bring a little sensitivity to their designs. Illustrations can be used to help explain complex ideas that cannot be conveyed in words alone. Illustrations can help create atmosphere and emotion in a building, giving it a unique identity and personality.
Historical practice that has been put aside but is coming back.
The advent of 3D technology has threatened the practice of architectural illustration. 3D software offers architects and designers a more convenient and faster way to create professional-quality images of their designs. 3D renderings are more accurate, and easier to create than architectural illustrations. But 3D cannot completely replace the historical practice of architectural illustration. Images produced by 3D software are often too cold and can lack personal touch and emotion. So let's use drawings, and let the magic and beauty of architecture shine through.
Here is a small selection. Some drawings were personal research, some were commissioned. Wherever it is to communicate about the history of your business or for renting a mansion, an illustration is always a great idea!
