The Art of Architecture: Hand Drawing and Design (South Bend, Indiana 29 September – 1 October 2016) nce

Join the Notre Dame School of Architecture for  “Art of Architecture: Hand Drawing and Design,” September 29-October 1, 2016.
The conference comes at a crucial time.  NCARB is considering deleting drawing from the Architectural Exam, while others are touting “programs which can design buildings without architects.” At the same time, many claim hand drawing is essential to the design process. In the last five years we have seen an outpouring of interest in the subject through books, websites, and sketching trips.
The conference will explore the continued vitality of hand drawing in the practice of architecture, education, and scholarship. We are bringing together over 150 academics, architects, historians, and students.
