Google Traduttore. Young Architect Guide: 5 Ways to Tell Your Story Through Drawings Alone.

Young Architect Guide: 5 Ways to Tell Your Story Through Drawings Alone

While your ideas may be brilliant, they are only of value if you can communicate them convincingly to all of those different audiences, crafting an architectural narrative in a clear and compelling manner. We’ve talked about how architects can tell the story of their project through spoken or written presentations, but can mediums of visual communication speak louder than words? If you are as talented at drawing as A+Award-winner Jerome Ng, then sketches and illustrations can do just that.

However, once the project is complete there are also challenges in expressing the project so that it can be understood by a new audience. This is especially true in digital media, where online readers don't necessarily spend the same time reading an article as in print media. This way, drawings and all visual representation and it's new forms -such as the animated Gifs- play an important role in the project's understanding At ArchDaily we push ourselves as editors, as well as the architects in our network, to get the best out of the projects we receive and share with the world so that we can deliver knowledge and inspiration to millions of people.

Architectural representation plays a fundamental role in how a project is perceived by the audience, which is why today ArchDaily is recognizing the most outstanding, original and self explanatory drawings of the year. The selected drawings cover the diverse range of different techniques used in architectural representation today, from hand drawing images to perfectly detailed axonometrics and animated GIFs - but one thing they all have in common is the deep insights they provide into the appearance, construction or concept of the buildings they represent. Lifelike architectural representation, as we know it today, stems from Greco-Roman schematic representation, which was based on careful observation of natural forms. In the Renaissance, however, the techniques of the ancient civilizations were rediscovered and refined.

Whether written or verbal, the way architecture projects are described to an audience often comes together as an afterthought relative to the rest of the effort put into them.

Young Architect Guide: How to Convince Your Audience With a Powerful Project Narrative

Particularly in an educational setting, where every minute leading up to a review tends to be maximized with work on graphic materials, it can’t be stressed enough that a significant amount of time should be dedicated to designing a project’s presentation narrative. A lack of investment in this area risks an unclear or ineffective communication of the project to its audience, nearly invalidating all the graphic work put into it.

Approaches to presentation vary from person to person and are often highly individualized. This allows a great deal of creative control over the way projects are introduced, but for someone who may not have much experience or formal training in storytelling or public speaking, it can be impossible to even begin this task without a road map.
