The ARE Sketches(tm) were born out of my journey to become a licensed architect and the study process I used by turning written verbiage into sketches for visual understanding. They have been shared online with others testing for their license as well as with those who simply enjoy learning about architecture. This book is whatever you want it to be. A flipbook of cool sketches. A visual study guide. A way for you to learn more about architecture. Each sketch provides a nugget of information in bite-size form, perfect for reading at your own pace with your own breaks. Write in the margins. Sketch in the blank space (there's purposefully room for that). Sketch on top of my sketches. Share it with a friend. Most of all, enjoy this wonderful world of architecture.This is the second in what will be a six part series of visual study materials for the ARE (Architect Registration Exams), covering mainly Site Planning & Design - with overlap to other tests.I get a handful of emails each week from people just like you, working hard towards getting their license. I love hearing from them and I love being able to help. That is the root of where this book was born - because a young licensed architect empowered to make the world better is a positive in my book.
