This is the first textbook for architectural drawing with thecomputer that is based on understanding how digital drawingfundamentally differs from drawing with lead pencils on draftingboards. Cinemetrics: Architectural Drawing Today demonstrates a cinematically-inspired, cybernetically imaged, architectural drawing system for thinking about architecture asembedded in relationships within the world at large. It opens upthe possibility of inventing new ways of building as framingflowing matter in order to live a philosophy of ?newness?. Theauthors, who have for fifteen years collaborated in teachingarchitectural students, link the architectural drawing text withresearch in the expanded field of architecture, which includesneurology, biology, ecology, physics, sustainability andphilosophy. The book is written in an accessible and direct tone.Providing both an understanding of the visual perception behinddrawing and practical exercises, it is set to become the key textbook on the subject at both undergraduate and graduate level. It ishighly illustrated with black and white diagrams and drawings. Praise for Cinemetrics Sulan Kolatan, Max Fisher Visiting Professor at University ofMichigan and Partner in KOL/MAC LLC, and William Mac Donald, Professor and Chair of Graduate Architecture and Urban Design atSchool of Architecture, Pratt Institute, and Partner in KOL/MACLLC: 'By progressively positioning their architectural research on"digital drawing" as contemporary cultural practice, Brian Mc Grathand Jean Gardner demonstrate not only a unique lateral intelligencebut ? to paraphrase George Lang's declaration that tradition is aconspiracy often used to keep the future from happening-? ensurethat the future is happening.now. This daringly analytical bookprecisely and effectively delineates heretofore hidden systems ofemergent relations between ideology, methodology, representation, and production.? Joan Ockman , Director of the Temple Hoyne BuellCenter for the Study of American Architecture, Graduate School ofArchitecture, Planning and Preservation , ColumbiaUniversity: ?With this engaging, mind-expanding, and original guide tocontemporary modalities of visualizing and representingarchitecture, the authors usher the not-yet-initiated into thedigital design age.? Mark Robbins, Dean and Professor, Syracuse University Schoolof Architecture ? Cinemetrics extends the parameters of representation bydrawing on aspects of media, film and video. This book is anaddition to the lineage of expanding the pictorial field - the NudeDescending a Staircase meeting the battleship Potempkin. Thedigital drawing methodology produces an explosive shattering ofarchitectural space and reflects the understanding of multiplevantage points and the simultaneity of events in the manner ofpostmodern literature and filmmakers such as Godard. These drawingshave the power to communicate as seductively as the moving imagehow architecture, space, inhabitation, perception and experienceunfold over time. The book offers new ways to analyze space andmore importantly new ways of generating it.? Professor Neil Spiller, Professor of Architecture and DigitalTheory, Vice Dean, Bartlett School of Architecture, UniversityCollege London: ?In a world of change, fluctuating points of view, duration andvirtuality, it is vital for designers to reassess therepresentation of their work in new and non-orthogonal ways, Thisbook addresses this most fundamental of design questions andexplains various representational protocols for the designer at thecusp of the twenty-first century. A must have book.? Susan S Szenasy, Editor in Chief, MetropolisMagazine ? A new generation of architects and designers has turnedform the drafting table to computer drafting and design, seeminglyseamlessly and without much turmoil. But, in reality, a whole newway of th
