axonometric projection

A form of orthographic projection in which a rectangular object, projected on a plane, shows three faces. One of two general divisions of pictorial projection (the other being oblique projection); often divided into three types: isometric, dimetric and trimetric.

The first rules for drawing what we today call axonometric views were published by the Cambridge scientist and pedagogist William Farish in the early 1820s.
The three distinct dimensions give the axonometric projection a far more substantial spatial aesthetic than the "floating field" technique but this is countered by the lack of depth distortion, which inhibits the naturalism of the scene.
If one then looks at the axonometric projections of buildings in Poland, in particular the "Centrum E housing estate" in Nowa Huta (Stanek, 2012a, page 41), one can indeed discern a sensitivity to the urban context (as well as to aspects of scale, volume, style, proportion, and traditional imagery) that was inspired by the experience of Polish designers in Africa and the Middle East.

In the so called Piri Reis map found in the 17th century versions of Kitab-i Bahriye, the same edifice is shown in an axonometric perspective: the leaded roof with a single pitch sits on a rectangular volume inserted within the fortifications of Galata; a round tower with a pinnacle is on the corner facing the Bosphorus (Figure 11c) (75).
