Gaze at Drawn by Design in Sydney
An integral part of the design process of an architect or designer, the initial sketch may be scribbled over, scrunched up, repeated and refined many times before a final drawing is produced. But these growing ideas and patterns of thought evident on the page can often be just as much works of art as the resulting edifice or object.
If you’re heading south to Sydney over the next few weeks, make sure to step inside Art Atrium at Bondi Junction to view an exhibition of architects’ drawings. The bi-annual Drawn by Design – The Art of Architecture returns to gallery this week, showcasing the drawings and paintings of prominent Australian architects. Capturing the varied ways architects utilise the sketchbook and pencil throughout their work and their leisure, the exhibition exposes the documentation, design concepts and interests of these creatives.
Running until April 19, the exhibition will see works by Rex Addison, John Ambler, Roger Barrett, Malcolm Carver, Philip Cox, Rena Czaplinska, Richard Goodwin, David Ham, David Holm, Chris Johnson, Virginia Kerridge, Swetik Korzeniewski, Colin Madigan, Ken Maher, Ian McGilvray, Lucy Moloney, Fiona Mitchell, Glenn Murcutt, Bob Nation, Danielle Pinet, Peter Roy, Jose Serrao, Stephen Varady, Tone Wheeler, Mark Willett and Ken Woolley.
