Changing Perspectives: Drawing, Photography and the Power of Line
A two-day drawing and photography workshop
Saturday 7 July, 11am to 4pm
Saturday 14 July, 11am to 4pm
Explore the role of perspective in architectural representations and develop your creative skills through drawing and photography. Taking each media in turn, over two days you will be led through a range of practical and critical activities that will enable you to experiment with perspective as a technical and ideological tool.
To inspire our work we will investigate RIBA’s world-class collection of drawings and photographs and consider the close relationship between the two media in the development and use of perspective - and how architects, artists and photographers have used and manipulated perspective in their own work.
Our practical activities will take place both within the RIBA's stunning 1930s headquarters and off-site at nearby Triton Square. During the course we will also discuss how perspective and perspective illusion can influence our understanding of the built environment around us.
