“Drawings’ Conclusions” was curated by Jeffrey Kipnis and produced by Andrew Zago and Laura Bouwman. Kipnis is a professor at the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University, where he teaches courses on architectural design and theory. His numerous essays, books, and exhibitions on theory, design, and drawing investigate issues that define contemporary architecture. Andrew Zago and Laura Bouwman, of Zago Architecture, consistently bring open-ended creative inquiry to disciplinary concerns in architecture through their practice. Zago is also a professor at SCI-Arc and the University of Illinois at Chicago.
