Beginnings: Drawing Early Architecture

Curated by Timothy Cooke (SMArchS BT) and Andrew Ferentinos (SMArchS Urbanism)

At a time when the use of hand media in architectural representation is increasingly rare, this exhibition highlights the beauty and utility of hand drawings. On display will be a selection from the more than three hundred drawings that were created for the forthcoming textbook, Architecture of First Societies: A Global Perspective (Wiley, 2013) by Mark Jarzombek, MIT Professor of the History and Theory of Architecture. Showcasing some of the earliest acts of architecture, the exhibition also coincides with the release of Beginnings: Drawing Early Architecture, a companion book of texts and drawings edited by Timothy Cooke and Andrew Ferentinos.
