Visual Studies 521 – Penn Design

Today we’re gonna take it a little easy.  We’re gonna show you a few videos from students at U Penn’s Penn Design SoA.  Each video investigates how we express architectural ideas and the different mediums, and how we can create a new medium to present a more well understood and coherent architectural vision.

STUDENTS: Alyssa Olson, Andrew Gardner, William Wong, Kordae Henry
SCHOOL: University of Pennsylvania PennDesign SoA
CLASS:  Visual Studies

In which medium can we best express architectural representation? How do time, notation, and score become integrated to present an architectural project that can be more than compositional – to be processional? In Arch. 521 Visual Studies, led by Assistant Professor Simon Kim, Active Drawing became a space of inquiry or a diagrammatic interface.
