“What is a notebook to you?” This question is posed to each of the 24 international architectural offices featured in this fascinating compendium of sketches, drawings, digital renderings and ideas on paper. Many architects see their notebooks as one of the most important tools of the trade. Filling up blank pages with quick notes and freehand drawings enables practitioners to remember important insights into a project, develop designs and later translate those concepts into reality. Besides reproducing a treasure trove of pages from numerous notebooks, the varying perspectives on this enduring object’s function and status in contemporary practice is explored in detail.
