For more than 30 years, David Macaulay’s drawings have unearthed "the way things work." Trained as an architect, Macaulay has long been fascinated by large-scale constructions, and his accessible illustrations teach viewers to see, and understand, the architectural and engineering processes behind structures. Macaulay’s unique brand of drawing, which can be described as visual archeology, not only peels back exterior facades and interior walls, but also shows us how buildings were designed and constructed from the ground up. David Macaulay: The Art of Drawing Architecture focuses on the artist’s use of drawing to research historic buildings, to render architecture from engaging perspectives, to reveal underlying structures, and to critique and redesign, in a playful manner, the contemporary landscape of American architecture.
