Focusing on the creative and inventive significance of drawing for architecture, Drawings highlights the work of key contemporary figures who have, through their drawn work, affected the course of architectural thinking. Bringing this together is a chapter-by-chapter series of essays that broadly charts the forward movement and expansion of drawing iconography, techniques and methodologies. Thus it will move from such conditions as Victorian romanticism; Modernist heroics, Minimalism, Diagrams, the representation (and inspiration) of movement, technology and motive power; through to notions and examples of digital automatism.

Since autumn 1996 the architectural debate in London has been noticeably accelerated by the sequence of lectures made possible by the generosity of Frank Lowe and the Lowe Group. It is the 96–99 Lowe Lecture diversity and vigour that marks them out from the usual series. London is an ideal place to absorb and respond to the continual waves of invention, questioning and inspiration offered by the architect concerned. The Bartlett School is now a recognised centre for experiment and analysis which provides a lively background for The Lowe Lectures and this book attempts to capture the ′hothouse′ feel of the lectures themselves.
