This article discusses a research/drawing project entitled Abrahamic Architecture. The research explores the creation of graphite wall drawings towards the development of Jewish, Christian and Islamic architectural history and theory. The objective of the research is to address the gap that currently exists in architectural scholarship related to the co-authored synagogues, churches and mosques of the Abrahamic religions. These collaboratively built structures are termed ‘Abrahamic’ architecture. The research is investigated using research-creation methods that combine creative and traditional academic research techniques to support the development of knowledge through visual investigations.

More about this publication?
  • Drawing: Research, Theory, Practice promotes and disseminates drawing research with a focus on contemporary practice and its theoretical context. This journal seeks to reestablish the materiality of drawing as a medium at a time when virtual, on-line, electronic media dominates visuality and communication.

    This peer-reviewed publication represents drawing as a significant discipline in its own right and in a diversity of forms: as an experimental practice, as research, as representation and/or documentation, as historical and/or theoretical exploration, as process or as performance. It explores the drawing discipline across fine art, science and engineering, media and communication, psychology, architecture, design, science and technology, textiles, fashion, social and cultural practices.
