The Design Studio by Carolyn Gibbs
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This text will be most useful in both beginning and intermediate interior design and architecture CAD courses. The first two parts of the text are meant to be a general, quick reference for using the CAD program. The third and fourth parts of the text focus on learning to draw more accurately, efficiently, and effectively using CAD. The most important goal of the workbook is to integrate AutoCAD technology with the traditional design studio techniques of space planning and drawing. It will help students become more conversant with the technology they're using, while also relating it to its practice use in the fields of interior design and architecture. Also, this workbook addresses all of the criticisms of the current CAD texts: from a lack of drawing complexity to not enough professional practice; from a preponderance of computer command lessons to not enough relevant concepts and techniques.Features- Workbook problems are short and quick, requiring only thirty minutes to an hour of brainstorming- Chapter objectives and assessment techniques emphasize both left- and right-brain thought processes- CD-ROM contains example drawing techniques and design expression problems, template AutoCAD files, and video clips for more complex demonstrations- Instructor's Guide includes course syllabi, chapter objectives, digital drawing techniques and assignments, and real-world applications of Effective AutoCAD Techniques.
