Anyspace presents Drawings’ Conclusions: The Ends of the Line, an exhibition of 60 contemporary architectural drawings, open through March 2 in the Anyspace pop-up gallery at 59 Franklin Street in Tribeca. First shown at the SCI-Arc Gallery in Los Angeles, the show assembles work by 13 architects that engages in the conceptual, technical, and sometimes personal potential of drawing during architecture’s transition from hand drawing to digital representation in the late 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s.

Drawings’ Conclusions was curated by Jeffrey Kipnis and produced by Andrew Zago and Laura Bouwman. Kipnis is a professor at the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University, where he teaches courses on architectural design and theory. His numerous essays, books, and exhibitions on theory, design, and drawing investigate issues that define contemporary architecture. Andrew Zago and Laura Bouwman, of Zago Architecture, consistently bring open-ended creative inquiry to disciplinary concerns in architecture through their practice. Zago is also a professor at SCI-Arc and the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Anyspace will stage a series of architecture talks on Tuesday evenings that will be free and open to the public.
