For Architectural Analysis, a studio course at RISD I took my sophomore spring, I spent the semester analyzing the Yale Center for British Arts (YCBA). This course focused on understanding canonical buildings through the direction and manipulation of architectural systems. With the YCBA, I was primarily interested in the museum's salon-style curation of art and how it relates to the building's spacial moments, as well as the modular nature of the building's concrete skeleton. The drawings I produced for the class allowed me to explore various styles of drawing and rendering - some more successful than others.
After the midterm, we were tasked with hybridizing our assigned building with another from the selected cannon, and exploring the combination through a generated thesis. My partner and I chose the question: "What if the YCBA and the Met Breuer swapped personalities?". The following four collages attempt to answer this question.
