The new chapter for this second edition of this book will highlight the way architects are using new media hybrids traditional and digital and how this brings a new momentum to drawing. These 'crossovers' provide a whole new territory as attempts are made to release drawing from the boundaries of a single moment, a single-viewing position or a single referential language. It leads to fascinating insights into the effect that medium has upon intention and definition of an idea or a place. Is a pencil drawing more attuned to a certain architecture than an ink drawing, or is a particular colour evocative of a certain atmosphere? The 2nd edition features works by the likes of: Marjan Colletti, Ricardo de Ostos, Hernan Diaz Alonso, Zvi Hecker, Coy Howard, Nanette Jakowski, Perry Kulper, Ali Rahim, Gavin Robotham, Smout Allan Architects and Peter Wilson. Toyo Ito, Perry Culper, Izaskun Chinchilla, Kenny Tsui, Ali Rahim, John Berglund and Lorene Faure
