My Grandmother's Tools

1 Conversation

Our elders' working tools can be a source of memory and inspiration to us. An architect tells us about her grandmother, also an architect.

My Grandmother's Tools

Tavaron's grandmother's architectural drawing tools

This is my granny‘s drawing equipment. As you see, a few pieces are missing already, also the wooden box is a bit damaged at the bottom.

I still remember watching her draw as she sat at her desk in her dining room(a modernist dining room, not the typical granny dining room you may imagine). She was employed at an architect's office in town.

She secretly inscribed at university when she was young, I'd guess shortly after the war. Women were allowed, but her family didn't approve.
