Final reviews for first-year architecture students were held on Nov. 24.

The first semester of the first year is dedicated to the study of space and its representation in perception and architectural models and drawings.

Each student completed a three-dimensional project called “Composition-Around-A-Void” in which they used a selection of given architectural members (columns, planes and vaults) to establish an ordered relationship between a “figurative void-space” and a larger “field-space.”

This project is a vehicle for teaching the architectural conventions of descriptive drawing (including orthometric, axonometric and perspective projections), but drawing is also engaged as a place of invention and conjecture.

Professors: were Erik Herman, Jeff Roberson and Andrew Tripp.
