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
