VOL. 3

The third installment of ULTRA Journal explores different modes of representation in design practice. Design practice in the context of education is highly speculative, relying heavily on different modes of representation to convey the designer’s ideas. The style of representaion [realistic, collage, etc.] is the lens through which the designer intends their project to be viewed. The drawings that a designer chooses to tell the story of their project are specifically curated to convey a narrative and the models a designer chooses to build are used to convey something about their design that is best represented in the three-dimensional world. This edition documents the work of University of Calgary students from the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape through the study of various representational styles - asking why and how the designer chose to depict their projects in the way they did.
