ART 324 - Representing Architecture
We consider the built world from the vantage point of its three protagonists: designer, builder, and client, from the dawn of time to the present. We consider their search for a language, whether verbal or visual, to represent architecture. We devote particular attention to the promises and perils of the dominant conventions of plan, section and elevation and the ways in which each has shaped the design and historiography of great buildings, past and present. And we look forward, to wonder where the latest experiments in multidimensional and immersive visualization might be applied. Each seminar member selects a key building and documents and interprets its representational history. Andrew Tallon.
