Drawing becomes drawings. If there is a line through drawing it divides, yielding differingthough related concerns. The task here is to allow two of those concerns a productiveintersection. The ﬁrst concern, while having a form of generality insofar as what it bringsup for consideration is the inscription of futural possibilities into the present, arises fromthe description of architecture and building that can be located in Paul’s Letter to theHebrews 11:10 and which pertains to descriptions of what can designated as the city-to-come. In the Letter Paul describes how the nomadic Abraham envisaged a betterfuture. Paul writes that Abraham ‘was awaiting [ἐξεδέχετο] the city [πόλιν] that hasfoundations, whose architect and builder [τεχνίτης καὶ δημιουργὸς] was God’.
