The Aesthetics of Representation

This thesis seeks to propose Representation as Project. A conceptual investigation into the way architects portray our work through drawings, images, and models that define and express the project. By investigating the current methodologies of various mediums in architectural representation and challenging their relationship within their process and meaning to the project, the practice, and the discipline. The goal is to represent representation; that is a translation of elements with the architects’ own interpretation for an aesthetic. Representation as technique rather than a result of them.
