Spatial sequence and the architectural idea in presentation drawings

In presentation drawings, we can employ the best means of three-dimensional representation to focus on a particular aspect of the architectural idea.



Spatial sequences, as a series of three-dimensional drawings, are perfect to orchestrate a sense of looking around or through an image. Spatial sequences can be used to explain an important aspect of the design concept, such as a route through the building or the means of access and entry to it.

Clone House by CJ Lim

This series of three-dimensional images describe a variety of permutations for CJ Lim’s Clone House layout. The layout is a series of four rooms that can be configured in a variety of arrangements. The three-dimensional image, alongside associated plan diagrams, explains these arrangements.
