From 2013 - 2015 Drawing of the Year focused on hand drawing as a celebration of the architect's oldest tool. However, this year the competition took a new direction. Drawing of the Year 2016 wanted to challenge the perception of the digital drawing as being either technical or formulaic exploring the digital drawing as a media for creative artistic development.
This year's exhibition presented a curated selection of 365 drawings submitted by students from 64 countries; a total of 100 execellent drawings were chosen for this book.
The concept of the book is a digital and modern approach to the classical virtues of architectural drawings. The visual expression resides in the Aarhus School of Design's design line. With a distinctly orange pantone color, the publication gets an identity that vibrates between the attention-intensive and delicate.
