(22-23) Drawing Architecture


Master Thesis Studio 2022-23
Tutor: Riet Eeckhout
Campus: Brussels
Language: EN

In this Master thesis studio, we methodically enable the agency and capacity of multi-media drawing in the production of space and thoughts. Drawing Architecture refers to an action in the present progressive, architectural research through drawing, driving the unravelling process of finding. Beyond the usual representational imperatives of architectural drawing, we consider, discuss and use the architectural drawing as a site of emergence and imagination.

While the student drives the individual thesis subject and content, the studio offers a methodical substructure that is twofold:

Phase one: Thesis subject documentation.

The student explores and demarcates the field of interest and subject by means of a collaged landscape of visual triggers, architectural prose and academic literature, film fragments and visual essays, resulting in an opulent atmospheric exploration of an architectural spatial event. This collection of information phase gives resolution, direction and articulation to a developing thesis stance and sets up circumstances for an uncommon ground of unanticipated spatial encounters directing the student’s perception and conception of architecture.

The collected information is brought together and collaged in a film document, incrementally giving body to this self-initiated thesis assignment.

Phase two: the Material Condition

The students develop the depth, potential and richness of the architectural event into a thesis proposal and project book. Finding the means and methods to develop the potential of the architectural event through the production of serial design drawings, models and other relevant artefacts.

This studio forms part of the Drawing Architecture Master studios and can be taken in combination with Sem3 Master studio HYBRIDS, Aesthetics of interstice (Riet Eeckhout + Mira Sanders)
