WE SUGGEST

On Drawing Out Gehry, Riet Eeckhout; on how sketchbooks can become an ethos of a practice, Tony Fretton; and to glimpse and hear Siza, sitting again in front of his old sketchbooks, including Caderno 4, Álvaro Siza Vieira: Seven Early Sketchbooks.

Opening Lines: Sketchbooks of Ten Modern Architects is on view at the Tchoban Foundation Museum for Architectural Drawing through 7 October.
