The Construction of Drawings and Movies (September 2012)

"Combining Alberti’s theory with examples of experimental film making is a brilliant way to continue the traditions of linear perspective construction in the digital age, and to establish greater rigor and knowledge in the application of movement and time to architectural representations."  Brian McGrath, associate professor, Parsons The New School for Design, New York, USA
 

The architectural imagery that you create is most effective when it examines your project in an abstract manner. Most students and practitioners understand linear perspective and cinema to be examples of architectural presentation tools.  The Construction of Drawings and Movies asks you to consider drawings and movies to be analytical tools that give you the capacity to engage all phases of the design process, from parti to presentation.
