Operational Drawings

Again…. Combining multiple perspectives, orthographics and other projections to catalyse thumbnail sketches. ¬†Drawing not only the formal, but the choreography/dynamics and the invisible. Soon I will update with a little more description one one image.

Multiple Projections Moleskin

Posted in Architecture, Sketches with tags , , , , on May 7, 2011 by alexpkaiser

3 Drawings – 1 Plan, 2 perspectives projected from the plan in 2 different directions. Top down, and 2 point. Each is exploring a slight variation in the other drawings. The Third drawing is beginning to look at multiple timelines within one drawing through framing.

Fun method of creating them – if you are using a moleskin the pages are just thin enough to allow you to trace over your previous image. Skip a page and draw the first drawing – then you can go back one page and trace over the sketch and on the flip side of the original page trace and develop the sketch also. – So you can explore one drawing twice more and do x-ray/projections/clean line drawing etc.

Pencil Architecture Projection Sketches

Here are a couple more sketches. Exploring the interplay between plan, section and elevation – Scale, extraction of the diagram, and translation to different projections.
