Post-Digital Drawing in Architecture and Art
Andrew Lucia, Young & Ayata

At first glance, the artefacts presented in the second edition of Drawbot may leave you wondering. Including what appears to be mineral aggregates and alien plants and corals, plaster prototypes and photo-real renderings on glossy paper, the exhibits do not appear to fall into the traditional understanding of what architectural drawing is.

The works by architects Andrew Lucia and Young & Ayata stem from researches on the mutations of architectural representation and question the distribution of sensible information brought about by the digital procedures of image production. In doing so, they open architecture to a new, strange, materiality that challenges the set of conventions that have historically regulated the degree of realism of the architectural drawing.

Exhibition curated by Emmanuelle Chiappone-Piriou and Leslie Ware.


In 2017-2018, AREA Institute presents a program that explores the nature of drawing in the post-digital era. A traditional architectural medium, drawing is being radically redefined by the computational turn, through the use of digital design, visualization and fabrication techniques. DRAWBOT presents projects by architects, artists and computation scientists through a series of 4 exhibitions, workshops and talks. It explores the mutations of contemporary drawing, produced or influenced by robotic technologies, artificial intelligence, simulation procedures and genetic algorithms, and its reconnection to abstraction, imagination and materiality.

Study on an Image of a Column, Study on an Image of Ornament, & Study on an image of a Radiator, 2016. Andrew Lucia & Giffen Clark Ott

Tyler Eash, curator

"Too Real", an exhibition about "unrealities", artificiality, and the transcendental utopias of the digital world. Five international artist/architects have developed works that mimic, represent, or create systems of nature. The data of these systems is visualized as false serene landscapes and is manifested in the forms of sculpture, photography, and sound.
