The Traction of Drawing

Just a note to say I’m presenting at the upcoming Interstices Under Construction symposium at the University of Auckland. The symposium runs from Fri 13 – Sun 15 November. The topic is drawing. I think now is a good time to re-visit some of the questions about drawing that were asked when it first became evident that digital drawing was going to become the norm in architectural practice, hopefully without some of the silly polarisation of the earlier round of questioning. The keynotes are from Marco Frascari (whose Monsters of Architecture was an important book for me), and Laurence Simmons.

My paper is going to look at two drawings, one by Enric Miralles, and one by Preston Scott Cohen, and explore the idea of the drawing as a crowded field or a collective formation. Or something. I’m blogging about it rather than actually writing it right now…
