The diagram has grown in importance in the architectural discourse as a very powerful way to communicate and sell ideas to clients. In this course, we’re going to focus on how to create architectural diagrams that explain a design process in a clear and visually attractive way.

Having made multiple diagrams while working on different projects, we’ll go over the workflow I use to setup and create these. We’ll use Rhino with Vray to produce our base renders, and we’ll go over the optimal settings to produce the best high-quality images, either for web or print.

When we have our diagram sequence rendered, we’ll use Adobe Illustrator CC to put texts and annotations to finalize the pictures and as the last step, we’ll use Adobe Photoshop CC to create a cool animation out of our diagram sequence.
