    This course will examine worfklows to create highly minimalistic stylized vector drawings from a Rhino model for your design presentations using Illustrator. We will examine 2 different types of drawing styles throughout the course, including a minimal black and white lineweight style, and drawings in the style of architect Aires Mateus. We will draw site plans, floor plans and sections in this course, all straight from a Rhino model of Toyo Ito’s Tama Art University Library. 

    What will you learn in each video?

    This lesson will examine the diagrams of architect Bjarke Ingels, who has popularised the common urban massing diagrams that are frequently used in architectural pitches and competitions all around the world today.

    In this lesson, we will explore how to transform our 3D model of the Tama Art University Library by Toyo Ito & Associates into a 2D vector drawing, and prepare our 2D data for export into Illustrator.

    This lesson will explore how to take our 2D CAD data export from Rhino and in Illustrator use our preset layers to stylize our lineweights and fills in minimal approach.

    Our Rhino to Illustrator minimal plan workflow can easily be applied to section drawings. This lesson will explore how to create a 2D CAD section from our 3D model of the Tama Art University Library, and export it to Illustrator for stylization.

    We can use the document structure of our plans and sections in Illustrator to create other highly stylized drawings. This lesson will seek to replicate the style of architect Aires Mateus’ plans and sections.
