Marks Make Meaning: drawing across disciplines is an exhibition and related events that both honours celebrated alumni and showcases the extraordinary range of drawing research and practice across the university. Among those exhibiting are Sir Antony Gormley, Rachel Whiteread and ten members of staff from the School of Architecture and Design. The project serves as a platform for both collaborative projects with external partners and an opportunity to discuss future drawing research directions. Underpinning the show are three key strands: space and place; health and well being; and education and learning.
Drawing practices, from explanatory sketches and diagrams through to maps, prints, plans and much more, are fundamental to many disciplines and professions. They are deeply embedded across the arts, architecture and many other design subjects and are also part of learning in subjects as wide-ranging as engineering and medicine. Here on the School of Architecture Blog we will be featuring the work and thoughts of just some of those colleagues who participated.
School of Architecture and Design staff whose work was exhibited are as follows:
Dr. Sam Lynch
James W. Murray
Dr. Ben Sweeting
