A Look into Architectural Drafting! | Dia'ani Media: Design

Hello to all of my future designers! Today we are diving into the interesting world of architectural drafting!

Architectural drafting is the process of converting an architect's ideas into technical drawings and plans for building construction.

The future is here, and it's looking three-dimensional

Before the digital era, ideas were skillfully brought to life by paper and pencil. Most of the architecture we see is from that era - an era that thrived on theory and critical thinking. Although digital is great, the basic "old school" principles of illustration by hand are still important.

Ok, let's go!

Let's kickstart this by understanding the basics of architectural drafting. Architectural drafting is like the blueprint of a masterpiece, laying down the foundation and design details to make those dream structures a reality!
