Redlines is a collection of interviews with editors concerned with process, not the process of buildings, drawings, or models, but of text. What do the lines of grammar, sentence structure, and tracking say about their desired impact on the discipline? Can we begin to understand the diagrams of texts in the same manner as those of buildings? If so, what are we reading?&nbsp;
Redlines seeks to understand the pedagogical and design frameworks that make today's most provocative publications come to life. While architecture is traditionally concerned with buildings, materials, and scale, their importance and historical impact are traditionally recorded through words, books, and images. These records are organized, published, and disseminated with as many revisions and as much creativity and imagination as their subject.   In this session, we look Continue reading "Redlines: Pidgin"
