To imagine that Leon van Schaik’s ideographs represent a thinking process would be to miss the point. They are not representational but rather they are the thinking. Thinking in action if you will, concretised in a drawing. To make this claim in our post-Socratic world is radical in that it suggests that the movement of the arm and hand are integral, it is to claim that the body thinks.

Leon van Schaik AO, LFRAIA, RIBA, PhD, is a Visiting Professor at the University of Westminster and Professor of Architecture (Innovation Chair) at RMIT, from which base he has promoted local and international architectural culture through practice-based research. He is the author of several books: Mastering Architecture, Design City Melbourne and Spacial Intelligence (Wiley). His next book, Procuring Innovative Architecture will be released by Routledge in 2010.
