Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater is one of the most drawn buildings in architecture history. But what hides beyond the conventional portrayal of architecture?
The aim of the “Re-Draw” competition series is to develop one drawing to ‘represent’ an iconic architecture piece. The participants are asked to draft one image, with absolute freedom of scale, technique, and level of abstraction.
We encourage creativity, criticality, and innovation. The drawing can highlight functional aspects of the building, showing a deep understanding of one or more design aspects. It can focus on the aesthetic qualities, experimenting and mastering a drawing technique with hyper-realistic outcomes, or it can be an optical deformation, a caricaturist interpretation, a distant abstraction of the built architecture.
The drawing can strengthen a conventional interpretation of architecture, or explore a new angle, a new point of view, intellectual and/or physical. Fallingwater can be portrayed as a whole, a part, or a collage of disconnected moments. The entry is completely flexible and adaptable to the participant’s interpretation.
Non Architecture Competitions are open to all human beings, from every age and cultural background, working in groups or individually. Teams can be formed by a maximum number of 2 people. The registration fee is paid per team, regardless of how many members form it. Personal information of all the team members can be uploaded during the submission procedure of the final drawing.
The RE-DRAW competition is Co-curated by KooZA/rch in partnership with FALLINGWATER / Western Pennsylvania Conservancy.
