Drawing Matter

Somerset, UK

Drawing Matter is an organisation that explores the role of drawing in architectural thought and practice. Generated in response to a major collection of architectural drawings dating from the sixteenth century to the present day, located in Somerset, methods of enquiry include exhibitions, publications, public events, and workshops for students and practitioners.

Drawing Matter also produces an important website – a fast-growing repository of new and historical writing on architecture and drawing. The majority of texts address material in the Drawing Matter Collection, but there are also many texts on drawings and objects archived elsewhere, and made by practitioners working today.
