Fictional provocation helps altering the logic of focus on the exploration of space beyond the space alone, it contemplates the daily and abstract experiences to further inspect the observations. The Communicative properties of the drawings are a consequence of this observation, that makes the ordinary and the familiar to appear ethical and interesting.
Robin Evans (1997) in his essay ‘Translations from Building to Drawing’, tells us how we need to rediscover architectural drawing in terms of its representational role by using the transitive, demonstrative property of the drawing for better effect.
Here the drawing is neither a plan, nor a perspective. The drawing employs specific technique of combining the abstract and the compostional regulations of perspective in a method to enhance the direct and experiential presence of the inmate and demonstrate that this human interaction plays a major role in architecture. The effective use of the perspective plan drawing establishes a clear sense of the life and its embodied relationship with space. This is due to the ability to see the face and the head of a building that paints an idea of how the architecture is situated around the context. The technique also incorporates simple line work with little to no rendering or shading. Moreover, the simple line work is utilized to avoid the chaos of the context and give a simple rendition that is comforting to the eye of the viewer.
