Architectural Representation

Through practical skills and critical discourse, this course empowers students to convey observations and ideas about objects and space into visual media. “Architectural representation” as a topic can refer to many things: orthographic projections, constructed perspectives, diagrams, models, renderings, and so forth. This class focuses more narrowly on the production of images and the way in which physical and digital materials must be taken together in the consideration of representation today. This focus acknowledges the multi-mediatic, telemetric quality of the architect’s tools and the primacy of the digital screen in our contemporary experience of the world. The course prepares students to use today’s digital tools to design and speculate through hybrid forms of image-making.
