    As architecture students we are taught to draw, to distill information into lines concisely and abstractly. We diagram the relations between events and spaces over time. We zoom out. We make abstract to understand the scope of questions we seek to tackle. We find relationships. We highlight them. The aim is to zoom back in when we design, to touch the everyday.
