David Drazil


Featuring more than 600 sketches depicting a vast array of architecturally and culturally significant buildings, bridges, towers, monuments, and more, 100 Buildings and Architectural Forms is a visual reference for student and aspiring architects, artists, illustrators and urban sketchers.

This contemporary step-by-step guidebook demonstrates fundamental art and architectural concepts like proportion, perspective and spatial relationships as you learn to draw a wide range of important residential, commercial, historic and cultural buildings, bridges, towers, and other structures from all over the world and from ancient to modern-all shown from a variety of perspectives and scales.

Each set of illustrations takes you from beginning sketch lines to a finished drawing. Learn how to establish basic shapes, articulate lines for structure, forms and shading, and add defining details by drawing celebrated sites such as:

  • Residential: Fallingwater in the US and the Silo in Copenhagen
  • Commercial: Dancing House in Prague and Sugamo Shinkin Bank in Toyko
  • Monuments / Sacred: Stonehenge in the UK and the Cathedral of Brasilia
