Ken Shuttleworth: The Art of Expression - celebrating the power of communication through drawing. Tuesday 21 March at 18.30.

Regular price £10.00

In this talk Ken Shuttleworth will discuss the art and power of communicating the design process through architectural drawing. Looking at his career through this medium, he will describe how architectural drawing has evolved and progressed design both for him personally and for his practice at Make. He will touch on how it has informed projects, how it is encouraged and taught at Make and how it can provide a unique medium to challenge broad societal issues - as can be seen through the practice’s brainchild: The Architecture Drawing Prize.
