tools of the trade I

the first of a series of photos of the daily tools of architects. Not a set of antique artifacts, just the common tools used up to about 10 years ago by most practicing architects. The electric eraser has given way to Autocad, Sketchup and all of the other computer-based tools, with all the advantages and losses that it entails.

I think I have reached the point where exactly half of my career has been spent working on computers, half with these old dinosaurs.
