You are what you draw.

one’s line, one’s self

Tomorrow, I head to an architect’s office to talk to a group of architects and designers about the key role of the power of mark-making in their design process; specifically in their practice. One’s own authentic line provides the designer the essential, evocative direction, so necessary in today’s world of architectural design.

lecture: Glenn Murcutt

An announcement from a student on Monday night, ‘lecture at noon at the U. Tuesday, Glenn Murkutt is in town’.

(thanks Will)

I head over and I anticipate beautiful work and great conversation.

I run into a few old friends; I see many fresh, younger faces.

Glenn is introduced.


I felt smart. I agreed. I understood. I was refreshed.

An amazing ‘kick in the pants’; filters firing.

A great storyteller, talented architect and what I could tell a great friend for those lucky to know him well.

Here are my notes from the lecture. Lasting.

Do not miss these moments. I was inspired. Get out there.

He draws everything by hand!

Here are some examples below of his fine investigative work; and he draws everyday.
