As a recurring element, diagrams play an important role in the creative process of architectural design. Within them, practice and theory are closely linked. But has architecture always been diagrammatic? Or shall one rather speak of a specific diagrammatic architecture, one that arose in the beginning of the 1920s and has established its diagrammatic techniques through postmodernism, deconstructivism, and computational design until today? The book collects student texts and dedicates itself to various functions of the diagram — firstly as a medium of architecture, then as an architecture that elevated the diagram to a privileged tool of design.
