"Trusting the power of passion, Michael Abrams offers each of his readers an indispensible urban companion." J. Chaffers, Professor Emeritus of Architecture, University of Michigan "Michael Abrams provides a clear and creative methodology to guide students in sketching cityscapes, and the beautifully drawn examples provide extra inspiration." Stephanie Travis, Director and Associate Professor, The George Washington University " inspiring manual for students and professionals to capture and draw architecture in a fresh, yet systematic way..." Sophia Gruzdys, Senior Lecturer, University of Southern California "The book provides easy to follow guidelines and principles to make drawing a useful tool for research and analysis of buildings and places." Edwin R. Quiles-Rodriguez, Founder, Community Design Workshop, University of Puerto Rico "Michael Abrams encourages us to slow down, use our eyes, hands, as well as our mind to step outside of ourselves so we can better understand the many diverse strategies that have historically defined and constructed our surroundings." Stanley Ira Hallet


The Art of City Sketching: A Field Manual guides you through the laborious and sometimes complex process of sketching what you see in the built environment so that you can learn to draw what you imagine. Illustrated with hundreds of drawings by students and professionals of cityscapes around Europe and the United States, the book helps you develop your conceptual drawing skills so that you can communicate graphically to represent the built environment.

Short exercises, projects, drawing tips, step-by-step demonstrations, and composition do's and don'ts make it easy for you to get out into the city and experiment in your own work. Author Michael Abrams uses his experience as a field sketching instructor, to show you that by drawing, you can discover, analyze, and comprehend the built environment.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I have drawn for years and I think this book is a great reminder for me to continually hone in my craft ... 2. Oktober 2014

I just received my copy of The Art of City Sketching! In a field that's dominated by computer rendering programs, this book is the cure from the monotony of CAD programs. When I was in school I had a few teachers who took the time to show me how to draw. Think of this book as your own personal teacher. Michael Abrams walks you through all the architectural drawing essentials from tone to perspective, 2D to 3D, elevations to sections and the list goes on! I have drawn for years and I think this book is a great reminder for me to continually hone in my craft and continually learn new techniques. Whether you are a teacher who doesn't have time to teach all these techniques, or you are a parent with a student who just started architecture, urban planning, or interior design school, this book will become a classic book for them to look to when they need direction.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Unique Guide to Understanding Architecture & Spaces - A Must Have! 18. September 2014

Michael Abrams lays out great lessons, tons of examples, and an innovative, appealing approach to sketching that forces the observer/ sketcher to literally draw connections between what they see in front of them and the underlying relationships, ratios and geometries that create urban spaces and architecture. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in developing better sketching techniques, understanding architecture and urban spaces, or a student looking to master their ability to think about architecture and spaces. "The Art of City Sketching" is a must buy for architecture students!
5.0 von 5 Sternen "The Art of City Sketching" is a must buy. 23. September 2014

Michael Abrams' book regarding field sketching is a great tool for all architecture students at all levels to have. What stands out is that Michael actually uses real sketches from his students that he taught the same developmental process as in the book. As a fellow student of Professor Abrams, this book has helped in improve my love for field sketching and my sense of space, proportion and geometry. I highly recommend this book.

I would highly recommend "The Art of City Sketching". I personally know Michael Abrams and he is beyond talented and educated in this field. He has traveled the world refining his skills, and this book is a great demonstration of his talents. Through his sketching methods I have drastically refined my skills.

I recommend this book for refining sketching skills and educational purposes.
