The Moods Of Architectural Perspective – Conveying A Feeling

By Tom Tripp

Different forms and various shapes appear as we contemplate architectural illustration – conveying a feeling. There are sharp edges, and there are curved ones, and pointed rooftops and flat ones. The original illustration tells the beginning of a story. As you flip through the pages, the inside comes alive, and the outside dresses it all.

When using different materials, other feelings and moods will surface. Brick is serious, uniform, set exactly evenly. There is no room for much variation. It is classic and strong. Wood is soft, and it gives a warmer feeling. Stucco coverings are very uncertain and uneven. They will be colored afterward to finish the effect.

Raw stone is also used to create a feel. It is usually uneven and uncertain, although the stones are placed closely together to make it look like they fit exactly. There is much variation in the look, and a lot going on as we gaze at it.

How tall a building is also sends a message. It can be one story, or it can tower over a city, looking on as if in power. And there is always a curiosity about it, a sense that one would like to climb to the top to look down on everyone, as the building does.

Conical shapes of roofs convey a feeling of smooth, connected architecture. These are used in certain elegant building and home styles, and have a more subtle feel to them than straight lines of a flat roof. There are also very decorative edges to trim and some framework that adds the whimsical feel.

The illustrations that an architect creates portrays the skeleton of a building. When all illustrations are put together, the body of it becomes real and alive. All of the shapes become connected. The inside is understood, along with all of the infrastructure. And the outside is the final dressing to the creation. The exterior drawings convey a feeling, a mood that others will also feel from the architectural illustration – conveying a feeling.

Conveying a feeling with architectural illustrations is the artistic way to go. Get the low down on 3d architectural renderings in our comprehensive architectural rendering review.
