Eye to Pencil

Architecture and Drawing: Observation, interpretation and imagination. Phil Meadowcroft operates an award-winning architectural practice based in London. His main interest is in what binds communities together, and as an architect he sees drawing as central to engaging with the question of what makes a good building. He has kept sketchbooks constantly, as a way of sensing and recording spaces on his travels, merging observation and imagination.

Philip Meadowcroft’s workshop will look at ways of sketching places and spaces and how they are inhabited – the relationship between buildings as settings and the activities that they support. We will look at outdoor spaces through a walk through local streets observing and capturing qualities and the life that goes on therewithin sketchbooks, followed by drawing interiors and a façade from a more analytical point of view, to finally using various techniques to draw the setting of the studio space and the life within it. We will explore the ‘negotiated line’, palimpsest, qualities of light and shadow and techniques of drawing from rapid approximations to precise detail focusing throughout on the dialogue between people and their setting.

Wednesday, 23 March, 10am-4pm (1 hour lunchbreak)

This workshop will suit architects, designers, engineers, artists, and students and professionals from the creative industries who would like to improve their drawing skills and their understanding of the potential drawing has as a medium.
