Drawing Architecture
Drawing Architecture (2019-2021) Over the course of two years, a cohort of architect-drafters, architect-theoreticians and a curator are meeting every 6 months in a reflective exchange to discuss the production and exhibition of a collection of drawings and drawing-related artefacts. The varying cast of the bi-annual symposia are participants from US, Canada and Europe including Michael Webb, Perry Kulper, Laura Allen, Bryan Cantley, Nat Chard, Mark Dorrian, Arnaud Hendrickx, William Menking, Shaun Murray, Anthony Morey, Mark Smout, Neil Spiller, Natalija (Nada) Subotincic, Mark West, Michael Young and Riet Eeckhout. Surpassing the representational nature of architecture drawing, this group of architects considers and discusses the agency of architectural drawing in process and result. Drawing Architecture implies materialising an architecture within the drawing, where it can be sought, found and experienced. This refers to an action in the present progressive, an action by the author in the process of bringing into the world through drawing, - architectural research through drawing. The artefacts we are looking at are an end in themselves and not a preparatory means to a build environment. These symposia aim to reveal and come closer to the individual agency of each practice within the drawn discipline of architecture, to establish a way in which we can show this agency in an exhibition. The resulting architecture drawing collection and research content produced during these two years are to be published and exhibited by 2021 (a+d museum Los Angeles). An intermediate exhibition in 2020. The bi-annual symposium days are structured by round-table conversations and discussions that take place based on drawings or drawing related artefacts brought in by the participants.
