The Drawing Book series makes available in iBook form a selection of architects’ sketchbooks, or drawing books, that are held in the Drawing Matter Collection. They reveal the variety of uses that a small, empty notebook can be put to by architects in their creative lives. Gowan uses his drawing book as an instrument for reflection, and his entries are often lying on top of the pages, pasted in and carefully juxtaposed.
Published to coincide with the exhibition Gowan and Siza, Housing and the City, shown at the Architectural Association in London during March 2017, Gowan DMC(SB6) and Siza DMC(SB31), contribute to the range of Drawing Matter’s publishing experiments. These are designed to make architectural drawings accessible for study, discussion and reference.
To view this book, you must have an iPad with iBooks 2 or later and iOS 5 or later, or an iPhone with iOS 8.4 or later, or a Mac with OS X 10.9 or later.
