Description

Almost all texts of this anthology revolves around this same topic: drawing. There are subtle variations in the inception and focus of each of the seventeen texts but, as a whole, the book can be read as a continuous monologue that keeps going back to that same core idea, almost compulsively. Flores & Prats believe in the capacity of drawing by hand to generate multiple and complex strata of knowledge about a space or a place, so they use it to guide the successive steps in their design process. Their obsession on drawing, though, is a form of optimistic resistance, believing that the tools of architectural representation, if used with intensity, rigour and passion, can still help us decipher the world that surrounds us.
