Architecture is a discipline that has always borrowed select ‘tools, techniques and technologies’ from inter-disciplinary exchanges with science and art so as to establish its own idea and drawing conventions. It is argued that beyond the methods which have been and are commonly used, there are exciting opportunities to expand disciplinary practice in architecture. Some discussed in this article are found in intersections with computational science and programming, environmental and landscape studies, cutting drawings, anthropology and filmmaking. By exchanging methods of inter-disciplinary practice, architectural practice, research and teaching might be better able to respond to current cultural and social concerns of the zeitgeist or time of our culture.
