    Teaching Representation versus Fabrication

    Mitch McEwen

    What is the relationship between representation and fabrication today, between drawing and building, or thinking and making? When are we building indications of a process or an idea, representing something, and when are we building the actual thing? If we no longer have to represent in order to fabricate, are we now fabricating in order to represent? 

    This undergrad class that Taubman College let me craft from scratch with co-faculty Malcolm McCullough has been a fun place to muse on these questions with talented students.  Enjoy the course-blog, its still going for another week or so. http://repvsfab.tumblr.com/

About this Blog

This blog started during my fellowship at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Germany. Posts are sporadic. Topics span architecture, urban design, planning, and tangents from these. I sometimes include excerpts of academic articles. There is an evolving series of interviews with non-architects about subjects often discussed by architects (neighborhoods, social justice, style, sexiness, etc).
