## Simple Projection In Perspective

Here is a very simple method of projecting dimensions and spacings in perspective. The top drawing shows the front and side elevations of a house. The dimensions of these create a vertical and a horizontal scale. The horizontal spac ings are projected to the base lines by means of two measuring points. The vertical spacings arc transferred to the vertical scale of the perspective drawing and projected to the vanishing points.

The vertical scale can be projected to any part of a drawing. In the drawing below it is more practical to place the scale in front of the middle of the building, so we move it from the front comer of the steps, along the base line to the middle tine, which has been projected down from the front elevation to the measuring line Or horizontal Scale.

This is the way an architect renders ground plans and elevations in perspective. Tins knowledge makes it possible for an artist to draw any building to scale. Both vertical and horizontal spacing of units can be achieved with accuracy. Note that another point, called the "station point," has been employed here.
