Abstract

Drawing is integral to the profession of architecture, urbanism, and building. Being a design professional requires a commitment to lifelong learning and the constant pursuit of knowledge. Drawing and writing help catalog knowledge gained. The collection of experiences and memories serve as a design resource to draw upon. Taking photographs or reading magazine articles is a poor substitute for the well of ideas one collects while making an in situ drawing. It is not only a visual exercise, but a sensory immersion in sound, smell, feeling, and light. Drawing is experience. Drawing is research. Sketchbooks are stored experiences. Drawn ideas are remembered ideas, and travel is a design generator — especially if we draw.
