Inclusions 2 presents a collectable, pocket-sized edition of 35 drawings selected from the Drawing Matter Collection by Dutch architect Marius Grootveld of Veldwerk. Inspired by O.M. Ungers’ book Morphologie/City Metaphors (1982), the drawings converse with each other in pairs, and are loosely connected by a thematic suggestion. Reflecting the organising idea of the drawing as a persona, the link between image and artist is made explicit. In this way, some unlikely and some obvious conversations are set up between architects from different times and of different persuasions, which are as important as the dialogue between the drawings.
Including sketches and drawings by Peter Märkli, Superstudio, Paul Robbrecht, Louis Kahn and Le Corbusier, the selection considers contemporary architectural production while also delving deep into the twentieth century and beyond. This small compilation both explores the range of what an architectural drawing can be, and introduces drawings from the Drawing Matter Collection that have not been seen on the website before.
Inclusions 2 is published to coincide with the Open Review Session at Hauser & Wirth Somerset of the Architecture Summer School, and the Architecture Foundation Masterclass 2017 in Oxford. As the second Inclusions publication, it marks the beginning of a new series, and is one of the publishing experiments by Drawing Matter in producing small editions generated from its activities.
