Single-Handedly: Contemporary Architects Draw by Hand is a group exhibition, which collects original drawings by over 40 accomplished contemporary architects who, in an industry dominated by digital technologies, continue to work by hand.

Radically diverse in scale, materials, technique, subject, and spirit, these works overturn preconceived notions of what an architectural drawing is like. Some are dreamy, fiery and avant-garde, and others pragmatic, reductive and nostalgic.

Deeply informed, but nonetheless unconstrained, by traditional architectural drafting techniques, these renderings exploit an unparallelled formal freedom. Each one contains its own world and tells its own story, rooted in personal imagination. This exhibit gives vibrant testimony to the still-vital craft of hand drawing in architecture.

The exhibition is co-curated by Warren James, Director, Art Omi: Architecture; and Nalina Moses, author of Single-Handedly: Contemporary Architects Draw by Hand (Princeton Architectural Press, 2019).

About the book Single-Handedly, Architectural Digest wrote: “Straight from the architects’ own notebooks, these works of art capture their subjects’ intricacies and energy in a way that no digital rendition ever could … More than 100 architects opened their notebooks to share sketches that, while rarely used for presentation or construction, demonstrate the beauty and craft of illustrating their projects (real or otherwise) by hand.”

Nalina Moses is an architect and writer in New York City. She has completed retail, residential and institutional design and construction projects throughout the world. She has written about design, architecture and aesthetics for numerous online and print publications, and on her blog Drown Me in Beauty. Nalina studied art history at Yale University and architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Single-Handedly: Contemporary Architects Draw by Hand, her first book, was published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2019.
