Bringing together 30 years of his architectural drawings and sketchbooks, the show entitled Thinking through Drawing reveals Wilkinson’s design process from concept through to development and construction. The architect believes passionately in drawing by hand, especially in the age of digital technology and this exhibition showcases works in pencil, pen and watercolours.
A range of sketchbooks are also on show, featuring projects such as, Mary Rose Museum, Portsmouth, Maggie's Centre, Oxford, and the Kings Cross Gasholders. Renditions of the final architectural objects are also onsite.
