Drawing Out Loud: Tools for Design

with Narinder Sagoo

How do architects go about expressing and representing their ideas? Are quick sketches just as valuable as technical drawings? Architect Narinder Sagoo will be talking about some of his favourite tools of the trade, giving us a sneak peek inside his sketchbooks and explaining why he believes that you can draw anywhere with anything.

Narinder is an architect well-known for his unique ability to grasp and visualise architectural visions. Heading the ‘Design Communications’ team at Foster+Partners, he is responsible for the visual representation of all projects from sketch through to photorealistic representation.
