New Landscapes

Professor Cristina Parreño, MIT

The following exercises intend to draw multiple interpretations of one initial set of data through both its physical manifestation and related representation. The first exercise begins with certain abstracted geological densities and creates an artificial landscape from the different interacting surface representations of the random input. The second exercise exposes data present at three different scales through zooming in on plan and section tool operations, ultimately using the scales of interpretation to differentiate between two types of mining. The third explores a series of interpretations of the exiting plan of the pukara at Lasana by codification through drawing, expressing conflicting explanations of the same architectural ruin.
