Drawing in Architecture Education and Research

Lucerne Talks

This book investigates how drawing is used as a tool of communication in architectural education.

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 assembles contributions to the 2021 edition of the Lucerne Talks, the bi-annual Symposium on Pedagogy in Architecture at the Lucerne School of Engineering and Architecture. Drawing in Architecture Education and Research offers a closer look at the importance 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, this book 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 of new spatial concepts.
