Your Go-To Resource for Learning Architectural Sketching

I help architects, designers, and Hobby sketchers
to use sketching as a tool for understanding,
developing, and presenting their ideas.

In today's world focused on technology, we sometimes forget how such simple tools as pen and paper
can help us brainstorm and communicate ideas, quickly iterate a design, solve a problem,
or simply understand a perceived object or our own thoughts.

Hi David! I just wanted to say thank you for your work and the ‘Sketch Like an Architect’ PDF Handbook. I’m a landscape architecture student with no drawing background, and your instruction has really helped me come into my own. I regularly refer you to my classmates!
— Kimberly Ferrara, landscape architecture student
For me this course was exactly what I was looking for - a course that taught basic techniques that I could use to convey what I saw or imagined for my own sketches. The added PDF with references and practice exercise is pure knowledge gold.

Designer is someone who solves problems and then communicates solutions - that is my favourite definition of a designer. I like it because of 2 resons - it’s super short and it’s very truthful. The project ‘Sketch Like an Architect’ was created because I believe sketching dramatically helps designers in both of these disciplines.

The mission of the ‘Sketch Like an Architect’ project is to share values and benefits of hand-sketching for architects, designers, and hobby sketchers and to offer high-quality resources for further learning and improvement in this area.
