Cowgill Lobby: Henri de Hahn’s 2nd Year ARCH Lab

The Wayne Thiebaud exercise is tailored as a warm up exercise for second year students to interpret various pictorial artifacts suggestive of San Francisco’s dramatic urban topography. Students are asked to infer from the painting a set of compositional strategies which showcase the real, the hidden, and imaginary urban spaces. Sketching techniques are introduced with the making of three-dimensional interpretative tectonic models.
