What exactly is an architectural drawing today? How are authorship and originality re-conceptualized in an age of electronic reproduction? From ‘BIM is beautiful’ to the immortal quality of the hand-drawn.
When the computer replaced the drawing board in architecture offices in the 1990s, drawing became a matter of writing scripts for 3D models. Surprisingly, interest in the paper drawing has recently risen again and is influencing digital modelling and vice versa.
This Thursday Night is the closing keynote lecture of the third annual conference that The Jaap Bakema Study Centre organizes in collaboration with TU Delft and Het Nieuwe Instituut.
