Laura Allen, Luke Caspar Pearson (eds.): Drawing Futures: Speculations in Contemporary Drawing for Art and Architecture (2016)
Filed under book | Tags: · architecture, art, design, drawing
“Despite numerous developments in technological manufacture and computational design that provide new grounds for art and architecture, the act of drawing still plays a central role as a vehicle for speculation. There is a long and rich history of drawing that is tied to innovations in technology as well as revolutions in our philosophical understanding of the world. In consideration of a society now underpinned by computational networks and interfaces allowing hitherto unprecedented views of the world, the changing status of the drawing and representation as a political act demands a platform for reflection and innovation.
Drawing Futures is a compendium of the many approaches and directions in which drawing practice and research is heading. Featuring 60 projects from architects and artists to computer scientists and educators, the book opens up the discussion of how drawing may expand synchronously together with technological and computational developments.
The book coincides with an international conference of the same name, taking place at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, in November 2016.”
