Taubman College architecture fellow Rosalyne Shieh to present on the future of architectural representation at Drawing Out 2010

Architecture fellow at Taubman College Rosalyne Shieh will present her paper, titled “Drawing Unthinkable Futures,” for the “Drawing Out 2010” conference at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) on April 7-9 in Melbourne, Australia.

Shieh’s will addresses how the tools and techniques of architectural representation are multiplying and merging with the means of fabrication, and that the space between drawing and form is a critical site of architectural invention. Her paper investigates the projective potentials of architectural drawing and presents an experiment of architectural drawing as a means to unexpected futures.

A creative collaboration between RMIT and the University of Arts London, “Drawing Out” explores drawing across the boundaries of disciplines and addresses drawing as a way of thinking and communicating in the twenty-first century.

“Drawing Out” engages professional organizations and investigates the role of drawing in its widest possibilities, such as physical and virtual drawing; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural practices; digital schemas; fashion templates; architectural and engineering designs; creative writing; media and communications concepts; cartography and scientific schematics; architectural and mathematical modeling; business and financial mapping; and legal, educational and political visualizations.
