“A graphite mark on a piece of paper is one of the most powerful, versatile and informative objects in the world. So why don’t engineers make more use of it?”

Chris Wise has worked alongside internationally renowned architects on a variety of projects around the world – including the 2012 Olympic Velodrome, Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt, the American Air Museum at Duxford and, of course, ‘that’ bridge. He is widely known for his hands on attitude to design and is justifiably vocal about the need for engineers to embrace drawing as a means of communication.

In addition to Chris’ sketches, you can download a PDF of his recent article ‘The World in a Pencil’.
