Drawings for physical reassembly

Spring 2014, Design Seminar
Michael Meredith

Scans of existing buildings are easy to download from the internet. Autodesk’s 123D Catch has a wide variety of crowd-sourced meshes to choose from, but the models are often warped and imperfect for a combination of reasons related to the free software, cloud storage, and the quality of photographs submitted. This still limited form of “object capture” offers provocative possibilities when one considers how they could re-enter the physical world. This series of drawings explores ways for thinking about how these distorted meshes could be reinterpreted as drawings, details, elevations, and sections.
