That brief moment when ideas become as clear as day; that is where this thesis hopes to starts. This thesis sets out to question the role of drawing in current studio education in architecture and whether new hybrid approaches can work with or unsettle the digital hegemony for the benefit of 21st century architecture. As the mind works to draw out its own creations in "real space" the brain seems to understand its capacity to create feelings, thought, movement and gesture, all poetically expanded through millions of minute details. Can drawing help us to creatively keep up with the mind and improve our architectural production, by both analogue and digital methods? With Physical tactile means of iteration can we enrich our architectural content. How can redrawing drawings help inform the new spaces around us, how can we re-think drawing to keep up with mind and society?
