Representing the Space

Going back to our original spaces, we were told to represent the space from a subjective point of view using mapping, sequential sections, narrative and other techniques. My role within the team was to capture the space through a narrative. To get in the right frame of mind we ran through an exercise of drawing instinctively as a reaction to what we heard from Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities; a book written about Venice and how it appeals to the senses – a fantastic read for any architecture student. From there we were told to pick a story whether it was historical or just a line around the room, but to portray it in a similar way to a journey. I think I created a beautiful piece here but it lacked the substance behind it, partly because there was so much within the space, I didn’t narrow down my focus of narration enough.
