How can architectural representation be re-imagined to allow for ambiguity and multiple possible outcomes from a single drawing?
Architectural representation is often concerned with eliminating difference and producing a single built outcome. This eliminates the possibility of an unintended result, making the built result specific only to the drawing. If the performative nature of drawing is instead concerned with providing ambiguity to allow for productive difference, the drawing may become a generator of multiple possible outcomes. Each outcome, then, becomes more situationally specific to the builder, author, context, and drawing while creating a new understanding of authorship within architectural discourse.
