Do architects still draw by hand in the digital age? Sort of… In this episode of BIM After Dark Live, Eric Reinholdt (of @30by40 ) and I will explore that question. Eric will share his processes and show how analog tools are just as important as digital tools for his successful practice of residential architecture.
As BIM and technology enthusiasts, it’s easy to focus on digital tools and forget about the art of being an architect. Eric has done an amazing job of using technology to streamline his process while still valuing analog tools, such as hand drawing and physical model making. I’m sure you’ll be just as interested as I am to delve into Eric’s processes, tools, and ethos…
