Drawing Conversations

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesPublic Engagement – Public lecture/debate/seminar


What is a drawing? Over the past few decades, drawing has died, concluded, been popped, sampled, cartooned, montaged, turned (more than once), and digitized as image. Yet, drawing is still the term architects use to describe the representations they make, regardless of the technology of production or method of presentation. Within the discipline of architecture, a drawing often refers to representation that belongs to a trajectory of evolving ideas or a system capable of rendering subject matter that is complex or even ephemeral. As such, it is not the material or technique of the representation itself that matters as much as the exchange of knowledge that takes place on the drawing surface.

How these exchanges take place at different times and in different contexts requires the conventions of drawing to be questioned; traces of future practice lie in probing disciplinary transformations and current debates.
