The Tools of the Architect

Resumé

The fascination of the tools that we as architects work with is evident for most architects educated before the new millennium; the dry tactile touch and sound of sketching paper, the old drawing brush for cleaning the paper while sketching that has followed me since I was a student, the smell of the ink from the marker. However, it is tools that have competition from my battered baking form that I purchased very young, which faithfully has served me through life as a container for the utmost juicy baked tarts to the peppermill my first lover gave to me that loyally serves me every day.
My paper deals with the subject of finding the logos of the universal tools of the architect, and furthermore I ask if there are any parallels to find in the gastronomical and culinary world with potential for redefining the role of our tools.
Is there a discourse, a field of common rhetoric when we examine the tools of both the architects and chefs? Can we reason about the universal logos of these tools?
