There is something fascinating in architecture drawings about dealing with certainties and uncertainties, things that haven’t already been defined but for the ones we have some notion. The ones that still represent part of a subjective and has not already been objectivised.
Thinking through drawing was a seminar to reflect on how we represent and what we draw when we design. Intended to present new representational tools to master students it becomes a space to think about and discuss meanings and lines.
Through analysing drawings of master architects, sketching and drawing are understood as a tool of investigation and order. By questioning, for example, how to represent the landscape or how to represent the inhabitant we were able to understand things through its representation. Students were enquired to think about abstraction and figuration, scale and visual hierarchy or how to explore materiality through coded lines.
