Speculations on a threshold

Pratt GAUD Mediums 01 |
professor Hart Marlow |
This project explored contemporary mediums, methods and theories of how digital tools impact basic concepts of architectural representation and experience.
This course emphasizes the integrated use of drawing and modeling as a representational aspect of architectural communication. Through photography, collage, physical models and drawing, a new type of threshold was developed, with an emphasis on using these tools to create something new.
