Learning
to convert to 2D designs to 3D models
The
target of visual studies for students of architecture is obviously,
not to get pinned down to twodimensional compositions. Students
should cultivate their thinking to get motivated for threedimensional
compositions through twodimensional compositions and to introduce
actual space in the twodimensional flat composition. Generally
at this stage students sometimes are told to think that, as a
line is actually a vertical plane seen in plane or a circle is
a cylinder seen from top, thus any composition can be perceived
as an assembly of threedimensional forms. Another way to motivate
the students’ minds to convert a twodimensional mural into
a threedimensional form is to ask them to imagine the various
elements of the composition at different distances and to view
them from the front. Once the brain can achieve this ability,
it becomes easier for the students to generate balanced twodimensional
and threedimensional compositions with proper control.
