1. How to Draw a line ?

Architects use different lines for different purposes, but the line type most specific to architecture is drawn with an emphasis at the beginning and at the end.
This practice anchors a line to the page and gives a drawing conviction and punch. If your lines trail off at the ends, your drawings will tend to look wimpy and vague.

2. Figure-ground theory states that the space that results from placing figures should be considered as carefully as the figures themselves.

3. The cardinal points of the compass offer associations of meaning that can enhance architectural experience.

EAST: youthfulness, innocence, freshness
SOUTH: activity, clarity, simplicity
WEST: aging, questioning, wisdom
NORTH: maturity, acceptance, death
