Hi Everyone,
First of all this forum is a great resource, thanks to all!

My question:
I am a non-arch student who wants to get in an MArch program.
I need to submit a portfolio of work. I already have many ideas so I want to learn architectural drawing.
What texts should I pick up? Is F.Ching a must have. I have only taken basic drawing and desing classes.

Ching is a good resource.. for basic design as well as drawing.. however it's good to look at published work by other architects for different drawing techniques... Scarpa's drawings are a revelation... as are Miralles' when you pour over them and figure out which drawing is which! Some books skimp on the drawings so watch that.. Also drawings.. while explaining how something is put together... and there are basic rules... can be part of the creative proccess.. and in that way come from the individual..
