Introduction to Design, Fall 2012

Case Study: the Berkeley Art Museum

Kyle Steinfeld

A "warm up" that introduces students to the tenets of plan, section, elevation, perspective and axonometric, and establishes a basic proficiency in orthographic projection. Hardline hand-drafting techniques and the requisite topics in graphic projection are introduced, using the Berkeley Art Museum as a case-study.

This rudimentary exercise is paired with a discussion of the development of architectural drawing through the perspective of The Projective Cast, by Robin Evans, alongside a presentation of how this history remains relevant and influential in contemporary practice.
