The Ural State University of Architecture and Art (Ekaterinburg, Russia) is introducing novel forms and methods of developing freehand drawing skills in architecture students. An algorithm has been developed for depicting an architectural space from life and a model for depicting a space in a wide-angle perspective. As a result, new methods have been introduced in the teaching practice for graphic modelling of architectural space from imagination.
