    critic: Mark ERICSON
    students: Diana BARASH, Mary Rose PARKER, Julius TANIGUCHI, & Rebecca FOX

    This introduction to architectural drawing in the first term of Woodbury University’s graduate program, immersed students in line-weight, Descriptive Geometry, and shadow projection. The course began with a series of two-dimensional geometric relationships and moved into Descriptive Geometry, as a means of unfolding and stretching the two-dimensional relationships into three. These were then inflated through the student’s individualized methods of three-dimensional shadow projection. The intent of the work was to develop a rigorous, novel, and somewhat malleable method for moving between two-dimensional drawings and three-dimensional propositions.
