Storyboards for Architectural Representation: A Study of Gordon Matta-Clark's Oeuvre.
BArch Third year
Universidad Austral de Chile
The primary aim of this exercise is twofold: to acquaint students with the use of storyboards as a potent design tool and to instruct them on representing architectural projects through a color palette derived from their poetic concepts. Drawing inspiration from the oeuvre of Matta-Clark, students are tasked to analyze various projects. They are then expected to translate these projects into both bidimensional and tridimensional drawings. Rather than just replicating the original, students are encouraged to construct a parallel narrative that diverges from the initial story. Such an approach not only deepens their comprehension of the project but also enhances their creativity and innovative storytelling aptitudes in architecture. The tools integral to this exercise include ArchiCAD, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe InDesign. The methodology involves analyzing Matta-Clark’s projects through sketching, conducting a thorough analysis of the chosen project, crafting an original storyboard rooted in this analysis, and finally representing the architectural concept through a structured storyboard. This exercise has been invaluable in honing students' skills in architectural design software. At the same time, it immerses them in a detailed exploration of contemporary architecture and art. The deep dive into Matta-Clark's works allows students to recognize the close relationship between architecture and film, enriching their understanding of interdisciplinary connections.
