a critic about: “representation in architecture” *

representation in architecture is not a brand new issue. it’s one of the main field of the discussions through the tools of a very wide title: architecture. how can architects transfers their “design” ideas to any kind of observer of “holy” architecture. which language is spoken in these endless architecture valleys. it’s always a phenomenon.

in the sophist plato observes that painters suggest proportions not by following some objective canon but by judging them in relation to the angle from which they are seen by the observer. (eco, 1962) hence, it sounds contradictory a bit. in my interpretation, this explains why there is a challenge to reflect the idea by conventional ways. i’m not judging them that they are inadequate but it’s so clear that they never convey a perfect information. if you have any doubt about it, you can ask this to your site manager to tell you his stories about the details isn’t showed in application drawings, because it’s a limited 2 dimensional information package.

but on the contrary representation can give lots of information if it describes its own limits such as in the augmented reality projects e.g. in domus magazine 2012 march issue. it’s published with the title: from line to hyperreality.[2] i would say this images in the magazine and the turkish miniature has the same affect: 2d images has 3dimensional information.

as if the line –or a circle or a dot- is the inception of the design, which has a linguistic relationship in french –with its latin roots- that “dessin” means drawings and “dessein” means purpose.[3] so it can be said design derives from purpose –to commuicate/represent- which is interesting.

“i prefer drawing to talking: drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.” do you still think that the god[4] is right?
