The team at Flowitt were recently looking back through old archives when we came across a few hand drawings produced by the late Richard Flowitt.
Even though Richard Flowitt died in 2013, many of his jobs are still ongoing, using these hand drawn images for inspiration. His incredible talent for producing hand drawings is something that came from his generation of Architects; these would have been used technically or for the aesthetic ideal. Quite different from today’s parametric design produced on a computer.
The ability to draw by hand in architecture has become something of a dying tradition within the profession, as CAD drawings are more frequently used. It’s refreshing to find hand drawings of jobs, both past and present.
These drawings will now hang in the office, as a constant reminder of hand drawn beauty and the comfort that Richard is still ever present within Flowitt Architects.
