TANGIBLE / INTANGIBLE / EXPERIENTIAL / TEMPORAL
The studio i for the Masters in Urban Design and Urban Conservation introduces the students to ideas of mapping, reading & representation in the city. The mapping & representing is a construct of event through various methods of reading. The reading of event or narratives brings out multi-folds of experiences. The conventional map reduces the complex geographies in to various territories based on static phenomena, while mapping and reading allows the development of new method of investigation through overlaps of ideas & representation. Hence mapping is de-limiting canvas, allowing participation of various forces, represented in peculiarities.
The mapping, reading & representing allows to capture the static and kinetic forces in simultaneity. The two groups 11 students each were formulated to carry out primary source survey and visual experiences. The series of documentation generated to arrive at basic features of site that could be capture in mapping, reading & representing. The series of drawing production and its method resulted into 7 sub groups, each attempting to construct or represent the irreducible complexity of the city
