Experimental Drawing

afra1small

 

Inspired by the recent exhibit at the RISD Museum “Drawing Ambiance: Alvin Boyarsky and the Architectural Association” and the period in architectural history known as “Paper Architecture,” this course operates around this central question: what constitutes architecture (and/or space), and where does it begin and end? Specifically;

 

-What is drawing?

-Can architecture/space exist on paper?

-What are the spatial, material, and tectonic implications of a drawing, particularly regarding the relationship between lines, marks, color, etc.?

-Is it possible to preserve the language of works on paper during the translation to a 3-dimensional form?
