THE DRAWING PAD
and HOW TO USE IT
This drawing pad can be used to articulate each unfolding. It is more than a method that helps you capture your ideas at each step. Its use is important because it helps each unfolding to come into being. Then each new unfolding is built on top of the last, creating geometrical coherence in design, function, and a sense of place. As you learn to do this, you move towards giving unity to the whole.

As you develop each "layer" on the drawing pad, print it, and include it in your WORKBOOK (see menu to the left).

 



. . . where you can draw . . . and see the layers of successive unfoldings, turn them on and off, draw new layers to describe the unfolding configurations created by the next unfolding process.

With practice, we hope this will enable you, gradually, to bring the whole to a harmonious order.
