Ink, or "V is for Vermilion as Described by Vitruvius"

An A to Z of Ink in Architecture

Michelle Fornabai

Columbia Books on Architecture and the City

Ink proposes a creative and critical inquiry into ink's instrumentality in architecture. This collect-ion of short essays comprises a latent history of architecture in ink, placing ink in our world with the purpose of gaining knowledge within and for the architectural discipline. A close consideration of the varied conceptual and material aspects of ink acts as a medium to reflect upon the means by which architectural knowledge is generated, articulated, and applied.
