Thread: Architecture Portfolio

  1. #1

    Default Architecture Portfolio

    So, thankfully, this gap year is drawing to a close and with that I'm working away at my portfolio to be handed in with my Architecture application at UCT for next year.

    Anyway, I'm kinda experiencing a creativity block regarding two of the tasks that are dependant on each other. The first involves me making a simple drawing of a "manufactured object," paying special attention to the detailing and properties (such as coarseness) of said item. Now that's all very well and good, except that for the second task I need to create a pattern incorporating said manufactured object that can be printed on fabric. And that's where I go WTF?

    Any ideas? Thought I'd throw it out here and hope for the best. Maybe someone has something interesting in mind. Obviously it needs to be something I should have lying around or can acquire easily, as well as apply some abstractness to when it comes to incorporating it into a pattern. As a result of the pattern, said object will have to be fairly simple. Too much detailing isn't going to work in task 2

    Thanks!

    is this like technical drawing? We had to cut open something and then draw the cross section at 1:1 scale. Can't remember what i did. It had a spring in it :P

    No, not quite. It's more of a sketch than an accurate drawing. Architecture at UCT and most universities is art-based, hence the portfolio consisting of art-based tasks instead of technical tasks like accurate constructions etc.

    That's the problem...I'm stumped I've got very clear ideas when it comes to what I want to do regarding the other 4 tasks, but task 1 just isn't happening and task 2 hasn't begun as a result of it either...

    As many architects will tell you...you can see engineers designed many buildings here in the 70's. Take a look at an apartment block from that era and you'll stop questioning why it's so boxy and boring
