Architecture Update

David Hepher

So you should all now have quite a substantial body of work for this project and be at the stage where you are ready to plan and realise your final piece. Planning stages should be complete by the end of tomorrow (Tuesday 3rd February), so that by Wednesday everybody is working on final outcomes, this should give you time to resolve some hopefully ambitious plans.

Pre trip work:
  • Selection of your best photos from the College architecture.
  • Research into 2 modern Architects (see the brief for names).
  • 1 or more sustained full page pencil tonal drawings based on your College photos.
  • 1 or more controlled linear (fineliner/biro) drawings based on your College photos.
  • At least 2 additional drawings exploring alternative media/technique - these could be faster more expressive pieces.
  • 1 good Gold Card print from your College photos.
 Post Trip work:
  • Selection of your best photos from the London Trip.
  • Research into 2 Artists/Designers whose work is inspired or influenced by Architecture (see the brief for names). If you know what you are planning for your final piece then try to find at least one practitioner whose work has a clear relationship to your intentions - so if you are planning a sculptural garment look at a Fashion Designer/collection that extends the body through structural garments.
  • A sustained full page pencil tonal drawings based on your London photos and/or a controlled linear (fineliner/biro) drawing.
  • 1 or more good Gold Card print from your London photos.
  • At least 1 sustained and successful piece of monoprinting based on London Architecture.
  • At least 3 Collage/mixed media pieces developed from your London imagery. Use a range of techniques to create these (refer to the brief for a list of potential media).
  • 3 or more PhotoShop collage pieces (either developments of scanned work or created from scratch digitally).
  • Other experiments e.g. Carbon prints, copier inverts, paint transfers.
  • Paper city photographs, edit your best shots and print them out at A5/A4 for inclusion in your sketchbook.
  • Research into at least one paper engineering Artist (see link in previous post for names).
  • Visual planning and notes that outline your intentions for your project outcome. The nature of this planning might be very different from person to person, it could take the form of Fashion Drawings, experiments with 3D media, storyboards for animation or many other things. Annotating your developmental work is important!
