Understanding Pictorial Space – II

An analytical drawing of spatial symbols clues which indicate distance and depth in our perception of form.

The primary visual cues which aid our perception of Depth:

  1. Binocular Vision
  2. Motion Parallax

Our eyes are overlapping fields of view and Stereoscopic Depth Vision.

The pictorial images created by graphic displays have to depend totally upon secondary cues to depth.

Depth is created by –

  1. Relative apparent size – Linear perspective objects become smaller as they are far away.
  2. Light and shadow
  3. Atmospheric haze (Ariel perspective)
  4. Overlap – most potent secondary cue to depth

Conceptual Space | Architectural Drawing and Design

Conceptual Space | Perception of Space

The design of space is first a mental concept and any resultant response is primarily experienced through visual perception.

A form oriented approach in which space can be literally ignored – or a waste product after design is still prevalent in architectural circles.

From a form dominated perception to a renewed awareness of space as dynamic – vase/ faces experiment tangible substance.

The spaces between buildings is as important as the spaces which contain them.

Spatial Diagramming (Interior Spaces)

To create in a diagram and thinking attitude which has transported your minds eye through an interior space. It sharpens the mind. This is not a figurative drawing but a subjective diagram. The diagram might emerge elliptical due to the eyes perceptual window.

A) Draw lines from a field of vision different points – Select and connect various points in a room.

Perceptual/Psycological Space | Architectural Drawing

Observing the behaviour of occupants of different types of interior space and an introspection of ourselves in relation to each space.

  • A comic strip format
  • The shape, sound and dynamics of space

Select three different kinds of interior space:

  1. A small confined space – waiting room
  2. A large lofty space – mosque/mandir etc
  3. Public/Private space – a spherical shape

One hour in each space.

Tactile Sensations

The need to develop an awareness through graphics of the “Form of Space” as an element vital in itself.

A whole series of perceptual overlays – Architectural space. Day/night; seasonal cycles; Light/Dark; Moon; Artificial light; Warm/Cold; pressure.

Much of our understanding of environment is experienced through the sense of touch/ TACTILE/ yet we are not aware of it very much. A little awareness will help.

EXERCISE

The primary aim of this exercise is to experience tactile sensations and be able to use it in spatial design.

Our bodily contact with the edges of space is central to our awareness of ourselves and spatial location.

As designers of environment, we should base future man made spaces upon some understanding of its contribution to the experience of others.

Visual as well as kinaesthetic space.

  • Use a Comic Strip Format

(Compile a tactile space diary in a sequence based upon a consciously experienced chain of touch sensations within one room).

  • To Catalog in words and diagrams the varieties of SURFACES and TEXTURES encountered by our preselected extremeties of your body during a short period of time.
