NZIA City Talks: Drawing The Unfixed

Monday 16 October, 6pm

Drawing The Unfixed 
Simon Twose
Personal And Planetary Architectural Sketches

This talk presents a series of recent architectural drawing projects. These are part of ongoing work in ‘expanded drawing’ exploring intangible conditions within phenomena through open sketches. The work looks to create situations where architecture is sketched through multiple gestures, mixing such things as oceanic immensity and seismic latency with minute adjustments of a line sketched in space. This work spans architectural projects to multi-sensory drawing installations, with the latest sketching personal and planetary dynamics in an old house at the edge of the Kaikōura Canyon.   

Simon Twose’s work focuses on drawing, particularly in territories between art and architecture practices. Twose researches through creative works, which have transitioned from traditional drawing and built projects to spatio-temporal drawing installations. Twose is an architect and associate professor at the School of Architecture, Te Herenga Waka | Victoria University of Wellington.   

City Talks is an ongoing series initiated by the New Zealand Institute of Architects Wellington Branch and presented in partnership with City Gallery Wellington. 

The talk will be followed by refreshments.
