Dunlop: 'Hand drawing represents the stain of the true architect’s soul on paper'

[ARTS IN BRIEF] Bookings are now open for a drawing masterclass with Glasgow architect Alan Dunlop and artist Patricia Cain

“One can learn everything there is to know about an architect by studying their hand drawings, the degree of rigour and research that they bring to their projects, their attitudes and their sensitivities. It is no overstatement to suggest that hand drawing represents the stain of the true architect’s soul on paper.” Alan Dunlop

Professor Alan Dunlop will present a talk on his passion for hand drawing in architecture, focusing on the inspirational drawings of great architects and artists, such as Louis Kahn, Paul Rudolph, Muirhead Bone and Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Dunlop will also provide an insight into of one of his own design projects - from early conceptual sketches through to completed drawings, exploring the process of drawing by hand and consequently the process of thinking, 

The morning talk will be followed by a drawing workshop in the afternoon, led by artist Patricia Cain which aims to encourage participants to consider drawing as a thinking process.
