More sketches from the “Design Thinking” sketching/field trip class. The first shows an adjustable connection to a modern piece of furniture, in this case a clamp as part of a free standing lamp. The second sketch is of a hand rail detail at the John Paul II Center in Northeast DC. Both drawings make use of the exploded isometric view, showing elements pulled away from their normal positions to allow a better understand of all components and their means of connection.
The term ‘axonometric’ is often used, but refers to drawings which include an accurate representation of the object in plan view, while isometric drawings distorts the plan to make things look a bit more ‘natural’. A much, much better explanation of the difference can be found in this image. Both links are to the designstudioiii.wordpress.com
