Architectural visualization & illustration helps to connect the story of any project with the viewers.  This beginner course will go through the basics of using basic sketches & transforming them into digital illustration-based visualization.

Classic architectural black & white 2d drafting has a significant impact on practicing architects & also on students. These drawings are the basis of learning our architectural understanding & knowledge. Adding a new dimension to these classic architectural drawings, new-aged digital illustrations & visualizations are also becoming a popular form of expressing architectural projects. These tools are used to express our ideas from concept to overall outcomes of any particular project. Thus, demonstration of an understanding of basic sketches, drawings & illustrations is required to express the vision of any aspirants.

This course will give a basic knowledge in generating ideas through sketches, 2D & 3D architectural visualizations & lastly, overall presentation techniques of any architectural project.
