About this Event

Thinking 3D: Architecture & Audience

Date: 27–28 September 2019

Place: Sultan Nazrin Shah Center, Worcester College, Oxford

During the Renaissance, representing three-dimensional form in two-dimensional media was a recognized skill and a virtuoso display of talent. As illustrations of three-dimensional subjects became more prevalent, it also affected the development of the disciplines and the professions.

A conference on forms of architectural communication in the early modern period will be held in conjunction with the project “Thinking 3D,” organized by Laura Moretti (St Andrews) and Daryl Green (Magdalene College, Oxford). “Thinking 3D” was especially significant for architectural practice, where communicating ideas and designs before and after building was of primary importance. Communicating architectural form was central to established and new audiences with an interest in the practical and theoretical issues of building.
