Looking at his career through this medium, he will describe how architectural drawing has evolved and progressed design both for him personally and for his practice at Make. He will touch on how it has informed projects, how it is encouraged and taught at Make and how it can provide a unique medium to challenge broad societal issues - as can be seen through the practice’s brainchild: The Architecture Drawing Prize.
