Drawing Matter Extracts

Drawing Matter Extracts is a series of informal anthologies that address particular themes or problems in the process of design. Each combines drawings from the Drawing Matter collection and elsewhere with newly commissioned texts, and others previously published on www.drawingmatter.org or found in the architectural library at Shatwell Farm.

The first anthology in the series, ‘Where to Begin?’, presents a survey of architects’ starting points, and is published in three parts, spanning over five-hundred years of architectural practice.

The second, ‘Women Writing Architecture’, selects 24 texts written by women to celebrate the launch of women writing architecture, an annotated bibliography of writing about architecture by women.

Explore the ‘Where to Begin?’ and ‘Women Writing Architecture’ tag on Drawing Matter, a selection of all the previously published texts included in the series.
