    Full Description

    What role does drawing play in architectural education? How is drawing used as an instrument for communication, investigation, and representation in architecture and the construction industry? This book brings together the contributions to the 2021 edition of the Lucerne Talks, the bi-annual Symposium on Pedagogy in Architecture at Lucerne School of Engineering and Architecture. It offers closer looks at importance and of drawing culture in the curricula of Swiss schools of architecture and in the practice of architecture firms.

    Conceived as a compendium and reference book for students, teachers, and practitioners alike, the volume explores the potential of drawing as a universal tool for communication and understanding among different societies, language groups, and professional communities. It considers drawing in its dual function as an object and a method for theory and practice in architecture, and features strategies for a future transdisciplinary language of drawing that enables narrations and representations new spatial concepts.
