EXPAND | 2019 | NO. 2 | Connection

September 16, 2019

At its most granular level, a set of architectural drawings graphically represents the connections that compose a building. Detail drawings show every connection, from the waterproofing of a window connecting to a wall, to the connection of two adjacent materials. However, most of the connections created by architectural design cannot be found within the construction documents: connection to the context, connection of spaces, connection to a community. Experiencing spaces together fosters meaningful relationships between people that go far beyond the barriers of an exterior fa├žade. This issue of EXPAND brings together some of the many ways that architecture creates connections.
