An essential aspect of this booklet is the importance of freehand drawing as a first step towards an architectural impulse. The drawings are not meant to be pretty or alined with any given architectural drawing standard, but rather expressive and a visual carrier of thvat first idea. I have often heared from fellow collegues and students that their design methodology is free from any analogue technique. While embrassing the power of digital innovation in the field of architecture as an instrument for a more effective outcome, this booklet is set to show a variety of drawing speculations, often unfinished and raw, in order to emphasize not precision - as computer masters do, but rather investigations of the build and unbuild environment as opposed to illustrations.


Introduction

Drawings and tracings are like the hands of the blind touching the surfaces of the face in order to understand the sense of volume, depth and penetration. 3

drawing editor ... in the digital age architectural sketches gain a new value. Often they serve as proof of creative independence from the machine and are stylized accordingly. ...im Zeitalter des Computers gewinnen architektonische Skizzen einen neuen Stellenwert. Häufig diesen sie als Beweis der schÜpferischen Unabhängigkeit von der Maschine und werden dementsprechend stilisiert.

Drawing a building is a way of remembering it properly. To draw you have to look very hard and I think it is in the looking itself that the building is impressed upon the mind. Often I measure it and make a plan, putting the dimensions on the drawing, because I know from experience that only by doing that can I understand what I’m looking at.

The value of uncompleted things is very strong... If the spirit is there and can be recorded, what is lost? The drawing is important, the incomplete scheme is important, if it has a central gravitational force which makes the arrangement not just an arrangement but something which gives a richness to the associations which are lost. Recording of that which has not been done must be made much of.

Louis Kahn, 1973
