Drawing the Delta

Drawing by Paul Broekhuisen, van Eesteren Chair, 2014

Drawing isn’t merely a way to represent crystallised ideas; it is an instrument to research and develop potential relations between problem-statement and spatial interventions. It is a mean to get grasp on the intrinsic qualities of space. Eye, brain and hand cooperate: it is a way of thinking.

Drawing helps to connect generic planning concepts and strategies with spatial interventions that are context-bound.

Deltaic landscapes challenge drawing even more because they are so dynamic, elusive and scale transcending.
