This course, structured as a series of 6 related lessons, revisited traditional methods of architectural representation with the goal of recuperating value in our discipline’s core craft: drawing. Each lesson tasked students with combining, juxtaposing and editing source material borrowed from architecture’s past while remaining conscious of the constraints of historical drawing conventions.

As children, we make things for ourselves: houses from cardboard boxes, tents from blankets, even paper wings to fly from the dining room table. As adults, we make less things. And while we grown-ups labor through subtext and buried complexity, children are quick to invent it; always toying with absurdity in the hopes of finding novelty. . . .
