Talk with Reinhard Doubrawa about Drawing Everyday Landscapes

Reinhard Doubrawa is an artist based in Cologne. He currently works at the architecture department of Bochum University of Applied Sciences, Germany. Reinhard gave us interesting insights into the tricky relationship of drawing as being both an activity and a visual product.

The recording is divided into two parts:

First Discussion on First Sketches

Many students have send some preliminary analytical drawings and sketches for discussion. The contributions showed a huge variety of approaches ranging from classical perspectives to bird eye views. This discussion on how drawings help expressing various aspects of the environment will be continued and deepened next week.
