“Scanning, Storing, Checking: Architecture and the (Machine-Readable) Image”
in Drawing Codes: Experimental Protocols of Architectural Representation, eds. Andrew Kudless and Adam Marcus (San Francisco: Applied Research + Design / Oro Editions, forthcoming).
An essay ruminating on the politics, materialities, and digital labors of machine-readable images, and explores how certain acts of imaging have restructured — and has, in turn, been complicated by — architectural representation.

I focus on three simple yet ubiquitous techniques: scanning (drawing as a capture of reality), storing (drawing as a telematic database), and checking (drawing as a site of automated detection and compliance).

Andrew Kudless and Adam Marcus’s Drawing Codes: Experimental Protocols of Architectural Representation examines the effects of this transformation on the architectural discipline and explores how architects have critically integrated procedural thinking into their drawing process.
