SPACE: UM SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE
LOCATION: CORAL GABLES, FL
DATES: SPRING 2009
CURATED BY: JACOB BRILLHART
This exhibition illustrates and examines the role of hand drawing and painting in the digital age by two architects of two generations. Drawn from more than 100 sketch books used almost daily and especially during travel, the exhibition considers the tradition of drawing as both a recording device and as a tool for thinking about design. Errol Barron and Jacob Brillhart, who both teach drawing and design in their respective institutions, Tulane University and the University of Miami, believe that drawings done digitally and by hand are not mutually exclusive activities but deeply complementary ones. The joint exhibition of how observation influences design will be comprised of sketchbooks, associated paintings, design drawings and architectural models that explore the interrelationships of drawing, painting, and architecture.
