UD 714 Drawing Collectives-I
Instructed by Cyrus Peñarroyo
Fall 2018

“Axonometric drawings have been slid in between the perspective and orthographic projections as an expeditious way of representing the third dimension without sacrificing the scale measure of plan, elevation, and section.”
– Robin Evans, “The Projective Cast: Architecture and its Three Geometries”

“An oblique projection usually shows the receding side in correct size but with a distortion of angles. By habit and by indoctrination we read those angles as right angles even if they are drawn as acute or obtuse.”
– Massimo Scolari, “The Mechanism of Representation”

The exercise asks students to develop their own aesthetic agenda and to consider how the appearance of the city – the formal, material, and spatial composition of its parts – contributes to our understanding of heterogeneity. Additionally, one of the urban scenes by other architects (or artists) will be studied to adopt its graphic idiom and explore a different set of aesthetic concerns.
