By David Ross Scheer. Routledge, August 2014, 258 pages, $40. In The Death of Drawing, David Ross Scheer, an architect and teacher specializing in digital technologies, lays out the contemporary practices of design that have pushed aside architectural drawing as the dominant means of architectural expression. The author crafts his sentences precisely, illustrating ideas that explain concepts clearly. If one wants to know what is going on in the profession and schools of architecture, this book is a must read. As a professor of architecture who teaches drawing, I was fascinated by this contemporary analysis of the act of creating.
