Tools of the Trade Exhibit Opening

  • Center for Architecture and Design (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

TOOLS OF THE TRADE tracks the significant changes in architectural drafting and documentation techniques via a retrospective of Ian G. Thompson AIA, RIBA. Ian was of the last generation of architects whose professional career started in a computer-free world. Though Ian maintained the use of sketching on tracing paper for schematic design, and his proficiency with digital design were minimal, the practice of architecture evolved in its reliance on Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Building Information Modeling (BIM). TOOLS OF THE TRADE guides the viewer through Ian’s architectural practice as it evolved from hand-drawn sketches and documentation to digital design files and three-dimensional building modeling.

Presented by The Ian G Thompson Foundation and New Orleans Architecture Foundation
In Partnership with Sizeler Thompson Brown Architects
