For centuries, architects have used visual imagery to assist in the design process – from Egyptian temples sketched on papyrus and Michelangelo’s perspective drawings to “back of the napkin” sketches and 3-D modeling. They help us to understand the architect’s vision, and, through the alteration of these drawings, architectural ideas find form.
Since it began 47 years ago, the annual AIA Dallas Ken Roberts Memorial Delineation Competition (KRob) has celebrated the best in architectural delineation. A Dallas classic, in recent years the competition receives an average of over 400 entries from 25 countries. KRob honors hand and digital delineation, as well as travel sketches and animations, by professionals and students throughout the world. It is currently the longest-running architectural drawing competition anywhere.
This year’s winners represent 6 different countries and varying artistic styles and expressions. Join us virtually for a rare opportunity to hear from the artists and designers themselves as they discuss their craft in a moderated discussion and share insight into their winning creations.
