Private Collection

Drawing Matter




Drawing Matter is a private working collection of many thousand architectural drawings, sketchbooks and models, dating from the sixteenth century to the present. Through its publishing, curatorial and educational projects Drawing Matter is also a public forum for examining the architectural drawing, not only as an object or means to an end but as an active way of thinking about, expressing and making architecture. We seek to nurture a culture – through writing, thinking, drawing, making, exhibitions, workshops, events, lectures, teaching and archive visits – of understanding the drawing as a practice of looking, and a form of endless enquiry.
