‘Draw what you see, know what you see, draw what you know you see.’ – Ruskin
The course is a 10-day immersion into visualisation techniques for architecture. Acting as archaeologists, forensic observers and oracles, we extract from the city evidence of its people, stories and architecture. Using rich and diverse sites within the area between the AA and the Thames in Central London we discover and construct new realities of the city by weaving together visions of past, present and future. The course instills a core understanding of hand and digital drawing techniques. Through a period of production, collaboration and investigation of the properties of drawing, we will cross the boundaries between the actual and the visionary.
