The bodies and spaces of today are not the same as they have been throughout history. One must now recognise a multitude of variations, both singularly and in the way they relate. Now that we are firmly immersed in a postindustrial, electronic age, it has become more important than ever before that we reassess the ways in which these bodies and spaces are used to construct our built environment. People daily traverse a variety of spaces and geographical co-ordinates are as likely to be defined by mobile phone reception as by a street map. Despite these changes in spatial inhabitation, architecture is stilI held by a historically fixed method of design. In order to understand the process from thought to building in architecture, we must begin at the start of the design process: the drawing.
