GSD Faculty and Alumni speak at Yale SOA drawing conference

Over the weekend of February 9, Yale School of Architecture hosted the symposium “Is Drawing Dead?” to question the historic role of drawing in an architectural practice now focused on parametric modeling, computational design, digital design and fabrication, and Building Information Management (BIM).
Speakers grappled with the idea of surrendering creative agency to digital processes, and questioned if the digital processes offer unparalleled opportunity in a phase of evolution. GSD faculty Antoine Picon and Preston Scott Cohen spoke alongside Harvard alumni Michael Graves (MAR ’59), Cammy Brothers (BA ’91, PhD ’99) Julie Dorsey (Radcliffe Fellow ’11), and Andrew Witt (MDes ’02, MArch ’07).
