Making Marks follows up the highly successful Architects' Sketchbooks,
which presented, for the first time, the rich breadth of sketches being
created by contemporary architects following the digital revolution.
Taking a post-digital perspective, the sixty renowned architects whose
work is collected here show how drawing and new forms of manual
presentation have been refined since the reawakening of this basic
technique. Notepads, stacks of paper, pencils and fine-point pens are as
present in the architect's studio as phalanxes of screens.
Revealing why and how hand-drawing still matters, this global survey
presents the freehand drawings, vibrant watercolours and abstract
impressions of rising talents and well-known names, including Jun
Igarashi and Brian MacKay-Lyons. Will Jones's introduction reviews the
importance of the physical sketch and its vital part in the architect's
creative process. Spanning diverse approaches, styles and physical
forms, ,i>Making Marks is not merely a compendium of the
preoccupations and stylistics of current practice, but a rich and varied
insight into architectural creativity.
