The Art of Architecture: Hand Drawing and Design
NEWS | NOVEMBER 2016
Notre Dame, Indiana
One of MV+A’s own traveled to University of Notre Dame for The Art of Architecture: Hand Drawings and Design Conference. As one of the presenters, project architect Kalinda Gathinji‘s talk focused on the role of perspective drawing in architectural design. Exploring the use of perspective in the Renaissance by architects such as Brunelleschi, Bernini, Borromini, and Palladio, she developed an argument for perspective drawing as a tool for understanding architecture as it is experienced through our capacity of vision. Using this understanding and applying it to the design process, we can enhance the built environment and the human experience. Other presenters at the conference emphasized the impact of technology on the brain as well as the benefit of hand drawing to more fully engage our mental capacity.
