Architect Talk: A Line Around an Idea—Drawing in a Computer Age

In this illustrated talk, James Wines, founder and president of SITE, a New York City-based architecture and environmental arts organization, discusses the history of calligraphic content in art and architecture as a means of clarifying the inseparable connections between mind and hand for the development of conceptual ideas.

From inverting expectations of what a “big-box” store should look like via BEST Products Company, to envisioning the Museum of Islamic Arts in Doha, Qatar, as a landscape of rolling sand, Wines has over four decades of successful practice, and stresses that in this age of computer rendering, drawing by hand remains vitally important.
