The Right Angle Journal - Fall 2019 - 6

back-and-forth lately about the value of hand-drawn versus digital imagery, including
the opinion that hand drawing has little value, or no value at all. The fact that this
discussion has been raging for more than 30 years, and continues unabated, offers
some evidence that hand drawing still has a place in the architectural profession.
The debate began in earnest around the time that digital modelling, drafting and
rendering became viable - and not just novel - as architectural design and presentation tools.
Computerization has, of course, made a major change in the way we work
today. [...] It is mindboggling to imagine the architect's office at the end
of our next 100 years! One can regret the passing of the fine pencil work
and artistry of the old-time draughtsman but the speed and precision of
CADD is here to stay.
- Toronto architect Dan T. Dunlop Perspectives, Vol. 3, No. 2, July 1989

The days of drawings are over. Design is all digital now. It gives you so
much more freedom.
- Los Angeles architect Thom Mayne, quoted by Aaron Betsky in
"Machine Dreams," in Architecture, June 1997

Architects need to have feeling too and not suppress the emotional in
favour of the rational. Since computers are only rational, they can only
ever provide half of a solution.
- Toronto architect Eberhard Zeidler, Perspectives, Fall 1999

WHAT NOW?
ZARYADYE PARK
ANTONINA POPOVICH, MARCHI (MOSCOW ARCHITECTURAL INSTITUTE [STATE ACADEMY])
AIP 34 STUDENT AWARD OF DISTINCTION

"This work shows a
panoramic view from
the Large Amphitheater
in the Zaryadye Park in
Moscow. Point of view is
essential in this work as
it represents harmony
between modern and
historic architecture."
- Tonya Popovitch

wo of my favourite online sources, commonedge.org and archdaily.com, have
been hosting lively conversations on the topic of contemporary architectural hand
drawing, and the recently published Single-Handedly2 (see below) offers some
thoughtful insights into the subject, accompanied by many impressive examples.
There are also some thriving architectural hand drawing competitions. ArchigraphicArts3,
hosted by Archplatforma.ru and the Tchoban Foundation Museum for Architectural
Drawing (Berlin), is now in its sixth year. The AIA Dallas KRob4 competition is in its
44th year as adjudicator and caretaker of the architectural hand drawing tradition.
