DRAWINGS - CARRIERS OF IDEAS
Image source: Course Faculty

A drawing can be interactive space where one can imagine, capture, analyze, communicate, debate and doubt ideas.
This course will question how drawings operate in architecture theory with emphasis on a particular role they play in conceptualizing design and analyzing situations. It will deal with potential of architectural drawing not only as representation but as non-verbal deliberation and
argumentation. Aim of this course is for students to produce drawings that are not concerned with appearance but that express ideas.
This course deals with thinking through drawing as a part of the design process. It introduces drawings as tools for conceptualizing design, analyzing and debating. Course will revolve around five topics that are introduced through different design theories, various projects, already existing drawings. Topics are Behavior, Movement, Program, Experience and Form. These topics are used as a backbone for generating independent drawings that will later come together in one final drawing. Every drawing is meant to be more abstract than the previous, pushing students to explore more conceptual ways of thinking. To support main drawings, different small exercises will be conducted.
This course will make an attempt to step back from drawings that present physical reality in a very precise manner and seek to eliminate ambiguity, like plans, sections, elevations and hyper realistic renderings, but will explore very conceptual, open-ended, diagrammatic drawings that deal with ideas.
