NonA Weekly: CREATIVE TOOLS
Drawing is civilization’s most simple and natural forms of art. But isn’t drawing only for artsy-types?
No. It is for everyone!
With this in mind, we challenge everyone to develop one drawing to “represent” an iconic architecture piece – FALLINGWATER, by Frank Lloyd Wright.
– Our very special list of prizes.
– Gain experience and recognition, request a participation certificate, and post it on your Linkedin or CV!
– Design a new puzzle piece to be added to your Portfolio or Behance page, keep developing your assets!
– Give space to your creativity by solving a given challenge, it is satisfying!
– Get to know better your team or your own design-thinking skills, it is fun!
If after all this you are still in doubt, here are a couple of articles to give you the motivation you need:
1. 10 CREATIVE DRAWING STYLES FOR ARCHITECTS

2. PETER COOK ON HOW DRAWING ENABLES ARCHITECTS TO LEARN, COMMUNICATE AND EXPERIMENT
The architect Peter Cook discusses the importance of drawing in the ARCHITECTURAL world. He compares drawing to new computer-based techniques, arguing that while software can do amazing things, drawing allows the architect to learn, communicate and experiment in a way that is irreplaceable.
3. DRAWING IS SO POWERFUL, AND WHY EVERYONE MUST DRAW
