Chris Wilkinson Sketchbooks
Despite being at the forefront of high-tech innovation in architecture, Chris Wilkinson believes passionately in the importance of drawing by hand. Where many architecture practices are dominated by computer-aided design, Wilkinson still uses drawing to think through ideas and problems. Here are images from 20 years of Wilkinson’s sketchbooks, a fascinating record not just of draftsmanship but of the creation of architectural narrative. Covering every stage of the design process and including working drawings for many of Wilkinson’s most significant projects, including structures for the London Olympics, this book is a powerful demonstration of the importance of drawing in architecture.
