Visionary Drawing


AIADO 3906 001

Faculty: Jaak Jurisson

Visionary Drawing combines research and studio practice in the exploration of drawings and images that are uniquely compelling and have the power to advance visionary proposals in the realms of art, architecture, film, and spatial invention. Examination of historic and contemporary sources will be combined with active studio practice in making drawings of visions, worlds, speculations, and proposals for spaces, buildings, sculptures, and future monuments. We will study an extensive variety and number of artists and architects ranging from Mies van der Rohe to Henry Darger, Zaha Hadid to Hieronymus Bosch, the Crystal Chain to Boullee, Walter Demarta to the Bechers to Coop Himmel B(l)au. The diverse range is deliberate and intentional. Course work will vary but will typically include readings, assignments of research, and regular intense assignments of drawing and imaging projects.
