As Francis D. K. Ching explains in his book Architectural Graphics, unlike the traditional, two-dimensional orthographic drawings used to represent layouts, sections, and floorplans, which only allow a project to be glimpsed through a series of fragmented images, axonometries, or axonometric projections, offer unique, simultaneous three-dimensional views of a project with all the depth and spatiality of tried and true technical illustrations.
This simultaneous imaging offers an advantage, not only in transmitting architecture ideas--like when presenting to clients or partners--but also in visualizing graphic studies and analyses. Unlike conical perspectives, where lines converge towards vanishing points, axonometric projections maintain an object's exact measurements and dimensions, optimizing not only their illustration but the study of their layout and design as well.
To illustrate the advantages of axonometric projections, we've compiled a list of 30 residential projects from throughout Argentina that use this technique to highlight their structural and dimensional aspects:
