What will I learn?

In this course, you will have access to a step-by-step process that teaches you to create architectural site plans that can be applied to any kind of architectural project. 

You will learn essential concepts like color theory, the structure of a site plan, and how to apply references to your drawings. You will also have exclusive access to chapters dedicated to creating your base plan, exporting it, and adding all the essential elements for it to fit and succeed in your presentation. 

Some things we will cover

Deconstruct the essential components of a site plan.

This course, like many, created at Show it Better, does not only focus on the technical side of educating but also on all the background and importance behind each image. That is why understanding the site plan is essential to create one.

Create a detailed base plan

A very detailed base plan may be one of the main secrets of a successful site plan. Here we will show you how you can do that.

Ambient your site plan with the correct elements

Just because we have a bunch of top view trees, does it mean that we should add them all? No! We will also see what NOT to add to your site plan.

From your imagination to reality

Meet your instructor


Hi! I am Sebastian. I am an architect based in Bogota, Colombia. Over the last years, I have also worked as a teacher, visualizer, and illustrator, and now I am glad to be a teacher here in the Show it Better team. 

My specialty is architectural representation, from drawing 2d plans to 3d visualizations, exploring different styles based on digital tools or hand drawing expression. 

I have always felt a huge affinity for all related to architectural representation. I enjoy working and looking for new ways to show an idea, and I want to transmit to every new architect around the world and to everyone who loves architecture all I can teach about this amazing passion.
