Dynamic Drawing Machines (2007)

A teaching workshop by CITA

Dynamical Drawing Machines explores a dynamical space of drawing. Architectural design finds its dimensions, intensities and depths in the constructions of the architectural drawing. As such space is formed by the conventions of section, plan and perspective. Our drawing tools, through which this space of drawing is inhabited, the parallel rule, set square and circle, whether analogue or digital.

In Dynamical Drawing Machines we ask how this space can incorporate temporal dimensions. How can the unfolding of the event, the becoming and the potential become part of the architectural apparatus? What happens as representation becomes simultaneous to experiential time? Or can we find other means of thinking time and space together?
