summary This paper explores an analog method of intaglio etching via digital /computational means. It qualifies an alternative approach to digital representation through the development of a narrative based architectural expression. The project, entitled Weerkas, was undertaken as an open call for the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam 2014. The drawings used a combination of 3D computational modelling and AutoCAD drawing to explore emerging drawing technique derived from historical drawing methods. These digital drawings were photo-transferred and etched using a polymer intaglio plate to produce the final set of drawings. While analog / digital connections have been increasingly explored in architecture, it is rarely used to re-create past modes of production. While this paper counters a nostalgic approach to representation, it is anecdotal evidence of a pluralistic method in combining three-dimensional and two-dimensional drawing technique as an emerging form of architectural expression.
