The significance of Art in Architecture is a constant debate. How much of art should be included in an architecture school, how much is too much. The kinds of exercises to be included. The importance of skill today... You may say or do anything but art creeps in!!!
In one of my second year studios at School of Planning and Architecture Delhi, we did this exercise -seemingly simple yet visually magical. The premise was that you could take any terrain, place, thing from anywhere in the world and make your dream map. These are some work in progress drawings done by my students. Enjoy!
