The exhibition installation on sketchbooks was on display as a background to the talks and events. Specifically new work (unseen before) was on display such as that of FAB ( Forum for an Alternative Belfast)- who were displaying their research drawings and sketchbooks as well as the award winning practice Hall McKnight who recently completed the MAC building. This collection of work showed the working practice and relevance of the sketchbook to creative practice in architecture. As well as the lecture and exhibition there was a workshop with local architect MIchael Doherty on drawing.
