Architecture, Primitive Drawings, Graduate Lab  

Primitive Drawings studied the two-dimensional properties of three-dimensional solids as tools for the production of architectural form. It used the historical practice of orthographic distortion to reimagine the potential of digital tools. In lieu of understanding the history of architectural representation as a linear trajectory of progress it positioned different epochs as collaborators in the study and projection of architectural form. Students engaged the history of architectural drawing not as a point of reference, but rather as an active participant in the design process. Students learned to use visual programming in parallel with the principles of orthographic projection and descriptive geometry.
