    Abstraction And Representation In Architectural Communication

    Abstraction And Representation In Architectural Communication

    Architecture is unlike most other creative disciplines. A writer starts to write words on a page that become a book or a play. A dancer moves their body to become the dance. An artist draws or paints what becomes the final piece of art.

    But architects do not make architecture. Architects make an abstract representation of architecture. So it is important to understand what abstract representation means.

    What abstraction and representation is

    Reasons for abstraction and representation

    Types of architectural communication

    Architecture Programme, Or What Happens In Certain Spaces

    Architecture Programme, Or What Happens In Certain Spaces

    An architecture programme captures a building function in great detail. For some designers, the function of a building can be seen to restrict the creative process, innovation and aesthetics. The lack of attention to the functional requirements will assure those that use the building every day will see it as a failure in design. Architectural programme is therefore an essential consideration in every design project and process.

     

    Listen to the full episode to learn:

    ** The difference between programme and brief.

    ** How to define a programme.

    ** How to explore the programme in design.
