Tan Kamil Gürer | For many architects drawing as an architectural representation is like having a dialogue with oneself, a way of thinking. Besides drawing, sketches, models, words and discussions, we become aware of their meanings when ideas are fully externalized. Although design is a complicated, ambiguous process, architecture slowly emerge out of this nebulous activity by means of representations. In this case, can architectural representation change the way of thinking of architects? Can the tools be leading the architectural ideas or the ideas leading the tools? If the tools have a significant impact on ideas, can they have a paradigmatic role?
