  • You can start from zero, you need to get the drawing tools in the intro so to get as much as possible from the course.

Architectural constructed perspective is the trademark drawing of architects.
All architects sketch and do technical drawing, but you will agree and intuitively feel that constructed perspective is where both parts of the architect’s mindset meet.
It is like you can get this right only if you are good at beast – if you are too technical and not enough of an artist for instance, you will fail with constructed perspective.

Come on, be honest with yourself…

How many times you secretly fantasized about just picking up a pencil and triangles and just designing?

How mnay times did you not feel like a ‘real architect’ because you had no clue about the logic behind understanding what you see.

How many times you designs suffered because of you not knowing enough about drawing… or even worse how many times have you imagined things that you could not draw or how many times you were paranoid that ‘what happens if the power goes off and you don’t have your software there to draw your designs’

How you will change:

  • understand the logic behind every image out there, know how to use your perspective skills as a key tool in your design arsenal.
  • You will be able to oursource your 3d visual abilities from computer software back to the drawing board.
  • You will get more confident in your design skills, as what you will learn from this course will teach you how to literally draw anything you come across in your architectural career by means of constructed perspective.

To sum it up, what you will get with this course:

  • Full lifetime access to all the trainings and all future updates
  • Over 20 hours of HD-quality video content
  • 90 videos teaching you 9 essential lessons to learn architectural technical drawing
  • 18 video crits that show you how your work should look like
  • 9 printer-ready PDFs

100% satisfaction guarantee, 30-day refund to back everything up Look, I want this course to be the best investment you ever made in your professional career. I am most definitely not perfect, but I do believe my courses are the best in the world! But hey, if for any reason the course isn’t what you expected, then feel free to ask me for a 100%, no hassle, no-questions-asked refund for the first 30 days! Fair is fair, you tried the training, it didn’t rise to the level of expectation so you get all your money back (and you can even keep the training, that is fine).

Although an ‘introduction’, this is a very advanced training that will change everything about what you thought architectural drawing is.
It will on one hand give you the skills to visually express your ideas, on the other hand it will build up that discipline in your thinking due to understanding constructed perspective.

This training isn’t for everybody – most architects I have personally come across live under the dillusion that they can somehow skip drawing as an essential skill set in their arsenal as they have an intrisique talent that spares them from having to learn this.
If this is you, then I wish you all the best!

I Teach You How To Rock Architectural Drawing And Design

Hi, Michael N here…


So you are probably asking yourself who am and why should you listen to me?

Well, I am just a normal guy, but the thing is several years ago I have made a decision to absolutely master architecture drawing and design.


Back then I was still in architecture school… and thingsgot really bad…


I was so behind in my abilities that I could hardly finish any designs on time so was behind on all deadlines.

I walked around feeling trapped, like all my inner creative juices, stopped flowing and I could not express any of the many creative ideas that were floating around in my brain.


If that was not enough, at one point I really lost self-esteem in myself and my dreams around architecture – ‘ if I wasn’t able to draw a building, then how in the world will I be able to design it?!’



So one day I made a commitment to myself: either really master architectural drawing and express my full creative potential or just quit on my dreamsand become a duck farmer in my hometown.



I hustled and did my absolute best to reinvent myself and to constantly upgrade all my skills… and it worked!


All my designs were consistently in the top 5% of all the submissions, I developed an unique drawing style and got a bit of notoriety because of my drawing skills (like a was some sort of local celebrity in all my social circles).


The crazy part was that one day I was sketching a quick design for my studio at the time.

And I was completely wrecked – had 3 hours of sleep, just lost all my drawing tools and had to resort to drawing everything in highlighters and pen (the type of pen you used in fifth class mathematics)


Also, because of ‘unforeseen circumstances’ I started the design 2 hours late, so had to really push it.


I managed to finish the design on time (which looking back was quite complicate: it had facades, plans, a couple of interior and exterior perspectives).


At the last 20% of finishing the drawing I noticed that people started circling around me and just looking at my drawing board which had all drawings on it.

I literally had five people just looking at me hatching a perspective with a blank look on their faces.


Ok, keep in mind, I was focused on getting the work done – so the first thing that crossed my mind was that ‘cheeky b*stards, they just want to steal my ideas’


But later it clicked! They weren’t trying to rip on my designs, but they were looking in shock because they haven’t seen something like that before.


Then I really understood what was going on: they had absolutely no idea how to draw like I was.They weren’t pretending they can’t draw in order to make my let my guard down or trying to steal my ideas, they literally were shocked about what hey were seeing.


Imagine the look on my face, like I couldn’t even picture that somebody could become an architect but have no clue how to draw… But just after a couple of quick glances around me and yeah I could see that all the other designs looked like complete mediocre rubbish.


Well, long story short, I handed in my design – while it didn’t get the best results for the overall concept, it did look miles better than anything around it.


So after that day I decide to make it my mission to cure everybody that wanted to learn of this terribledisease called architectural visual illiteracy (tohave absolutely zero clue how to draw like an architect)


Couple of years down the road, I’ve taught A LOT of students how to get good at this – I’ve watched dozens, and dozens of students come in with that glossy look in their eyes and after just a couple of lessons produce stuff that they didn’t think was possible.



But here’s the really weird part – about thirty or so students in, I have noticed that things which clicked really easily for some students, were a complete nightmare for others.


I mean, beyond the fact that you naturally either like some parts of the drawing process more than the others…


It got really crazy and I really put the time to develop a way to get to the real problem behind the problem.


Although it was really taboo at the time, I struggled to get answers to real pressing questions such as:


How do you develop genuine architectural creativity which is always there for you?

What isyournatural strong point in arch drawing and how can youdevelop it?


Keep in mind, I originally got notoriety for my drawing techniques… so we mixed both areas into a concoction that gave out crazy results and got all my students deep, inner change.


Like I could look in their eyes and tell that something was different about them after finishing each the lessons.


And with each generation of students, the teaching techniques got better and better, and the results just became insane to say the least.


So I got a simple question for you:


Do you want to create the beast architectural drawing work that you ever did in your professional career?
