Architectural Drawings

Definition of Architectural Drawings

Architectural drawings refer to the practice of drafting, which is partly artistic but mainly a function of building science. The drawings must convey the overall appearance of a structure while establishing the type of construction, overall geometry of the building, dimensions of the components, the relationship and interaction between building materials, and address technical requirements. Drawings are used for a variety of different purposes such as conceptual design, "as-built" (also known as "record"), and working drawings. These drawings are further divided into a number of types: site plan; elevations; plans (colloquially, "floor plans"); sections; details; axonometric projections (most commonly isometric); and schedules (tabular data).
