UD 714 Drawing Collectives-II
Instructed by Cyrus Peñarroyo
Fall 2019

“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 design a set of figures, control their movements, and describe the figure through drawings, and to populate a drawing and establish relationships between bodies, objects, and architectures. Additionally, one of the urban scenes by other architects (or artists) will be studied to adopt its graphic idiom, mimic its effect, and explore a different set of aesthetic concerns.
