Abstract
This article is one of the offsprings of an ongoing enquiry that set out to revisit drawing’s role in architecture, by weaving a field of relations between pedagogical and epistemological theories of dance, drawing and architecture. The theories situate the affective/haptic kinaesthetic body at the centre of all in-corporeal experience, perception and conception. This article examines drawing’s potential to revive the body in architectural practices, by unveiling forces and processes that compose bodies and intertwine with the corporeality of architecture. It establishes drawing as a form of dance capable of inscribing the kinaesthetic vitality of the body into architecture. It examines architect Frank Gehry’s sketches as dynamic tracings of embodied gestures and bodily logos that mediate body and environment, interior and exterior.
