Day 23 - Technology in Reverse
For most of the history of Architecture, a day in the life of an Architect was spent with pencils and paper. The tools of the trade. It was craft, just as much as laying bricks or carving wood.
Now we spend all day on computers. Modern technology is wonderful, don't get me wrong, but I feel like something has been lost. Drawings were once more than a way to dryly communicate design intentions. On the contrary, there was a subtle sense of Love and Care that leaked out of the Architects hand and onto the paper. It's something I need more of, and if you've never tried it I strongly encourage it.
