Architectural Sketching: Streetscape

Streetscape by Jigsketch
Architectural sketches come in many types though the street can be considered a very important aspect of any built environment. The threshold between a building and the street has always been an important aspect to any design which is why architects have been concerned with facades for centuries.

Being able to sketch a section through the streetscape to show how your building relates to its surroundings is an important means to convey your design. You can also diagram over these sketches to show views, solar exposures, etc. Check out these videos by Jigsketch on YouTube where he sketches some great streetscapes in Australia. The first video also gives you some insight into style and how to color. A great way to show different street typologies and explore how they interact with vehicles and pedestrians.
