Structural Drawing

Learning Layouting Using Chairs and Desks

As an exercise for layouting, our professor, who had built a complex structure out of our chairs and desks before the class started, asked us to draw parts of the structure, concentrating on shapes, surfaces and lines. We drew whatever we found to be interesting into small squares (about ten by ten centimetres). The purpose of this task was to find out, what simple combinations of lines and shapes might look interesting as a small composition, considering the possibility of putting content like images or texts into the shapes later.

It’s not spectacular in any way, but it was interesting to do.
