Tag Archives: Architecture through A Mixed Media Lens

This year’s Architecture Through A Mixed Media Lens short course at Ogilvy & Mather’s Chocolate Factory this August had some literary inspiration. Each student was assigned a short story from Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, asked to come up with a sketch of their interpretation. They then brought in a found object and took a Polaroid snap juxtaposing the found object against the sketch. And finally, they were asked to produce architectural models and/or drawings.

Here are the results in alphabetical order by first name

Christine Gros, Student, ATMML 2012

Bring a fresh perspective to your work by exploring creative processes, developing your lens and experimenting with media. This course will bring architecture into focus through the lens of mixed media that are used for architectural representation. Designers, artists and those who are new to the arts alike will find their way into architecture using mixed media and the mechanism of scale. The course is deliberately structured to escalate from images to objects to moving images (2D to 3D to 4D).

 Open to both Ogilvy & non-Ogilvy students

I will be teaching an intro to architecture course at Ogilvy & Mather’s offices (conference rm 11a), The Chocolate Factory, 636 11th Ave, New York, NY 10036

The course runs from July 20-August 17 2011, Wednesdays 630pm-930pm. Email shaumyika@gmail.com if you would like to sign up.
