“How can drawing be reconnected to be a tool of communication, investigation and representation within the building industry?
In the established traditions of architecture education, drawing plays a central role within the design project. Drawing is also the essential instrument of architectural research. For practicing architects, the drawing is the definitive tool of communication, investigation and representation.
Existing publications and conferences held on Drawing in Architecture reinforce the view that – more than a written text or mathematical formulas, and regardless of whether they are analogue or digital – drawings were, are and always will be indispensable attributes of architecture.
And yet, drawings invite speech. They are objects to talk over, or talk about. Their apparent universality stems from their capacity to invite speech from across societies, language groups, and professions. They initiate and spur debate, and these debates generate either the insight, or the consensus from which architecture progresses. The drawing here has a dual role; it is both object and method.”
