"The encyclopedic scope of Mr. Yee′s work is perhaps its most attractive attribute, from fairly esoteric subjects (such as descriptive geometry) to the most current themes (such as 3D modeling). It is rich in ideas and examples." –R. R. Davison, Jr. Associate Professor of Architecture Texas A&M University
"The book brings a rich variety of multicultural information into one volume – national and international architects′ projects, simple and complex building typologies, and both low–tech and high–tech design examples. It is instructive and informative at the same time." –Hiro Hata, AIA Associate Professor of Architecture State University of New York at Buffalo.
"Architectural Drawing is a comprehensive and stimulating catalog of delineation techniques with step–by–step methods for constructing each kind of drawing. Examples are clearly presented and grouped in chapters according to drawing type. This book is a useful communication tool that has become a valuable part of my professional library." –Steven House, AIA House + House, Architects, San Francisco
