For architects, drawing is a thinking process. Sketching by hand onto paper without having any predetermined built form in mind is often the springboard for new hypotheses. With the rise of digital representation in architecture, has the computer superseded the hand in the exploration of ideas?
This RIBA London seminar sees Professor Sir Peter Cook (co-founder of Archigram, director of CRAB Studio) and Professor Marcos Cruz (Bartlett) discuss the boons and limitations of digital representation in architecture, and the hybrid possibilities of using both in tandem.
Both speakers will, in turn, present a series of sumptuous drawings that describe radical visions of the future. Although these images reveal an architecture that may never exist, they represent the architectural drawing as a speculative tool and an essential part of architecture as an innovative and often provocative discipline.
The discussion will explore the ways in which architects and architecture students alike can use various modes of drawing to increase the potency of their message.
