Belgian architectural office “Architecten de Vylder Vinck Taillieu” (A DVVT) uses to produce a wide range of architectural drawings that cannot be confined to a specific style or technique. As the practice is deeply concerned with the construction process, drawings are most of the time used not to purely show or communicate a project, but to test and explore the building and to control the fabrication process already at the early stages of design. The tension between the study of construction and the representation leads to a variety of drawings techniques (sketching, scribbling, pen-illustrating, working on technical drawings, hand-rendering, collaging), that usually incorporate a layer of humour and “educated” naiveté, often obtaining unconventional results.
Only through understanding how something is created, design is able to play out its critical attitude (Via)
