What exactly is an architectural drawing today? How are authorship and originality re-conceptualised in an age of electronic reproduction? From beautiful BIM to the immortal quality of the hand-drawn. With architect and artist Will Alsop.
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 is now on the rise, and is influencing digital modelling and vice versa. This lecture by Will Alsop is the closing event of the two-day conference that The Jaap Bakema Study Centre organizes in collaboration with TU Delft and Het Nieuwe Instituut.
