‘The media are not toys… they can be entrusted only to new artists, because they are art forms.’
(McLuhan, 1954)

Translation Through Drawing

with Shin Egashira

CMS1 First Year

The course introduces the conceptual and technical aspects of orthogonal drawings in combination with collage and object making procedures assuming that there is no difference between means of representation and that of design. These lessons will develop in parallel to discussions of seminal architectural writings on a systematic approach to representation. Students must approach drawings with an understanding of intrinsic formal attributes of objects using concepts of formal addition and subtraction.
