The Traction of Drawing

Edited by Laurence Simmons and Andrew Barrie

“The Traction of Drawing” queries whether, with the proliferation and maturation of digital technologies, drawing is now really “done and dusted”. The collection of essays, drawings and reviews in this issue explores different technologies of drawings and suggests that drawing still works. However, a shift to a post-digital condition is required where, by critically re-evaluating and renegotiating the roles of various instruments and techniques, the ‘craft’ of drawing applies across all drawing practices, analogue and digital. The gap that seems to divide these approaches is artificial, and drawing maintains its central role in architectural thinking and making.
