summary This work explores the transformation process from drawings to buildings by inserting unusual representation techniques between traditional orthographic drawings and actual buildings. The aim has been to explore the links and gaps between architecture as drawn and as built to gain a better understanding of the translation from idea to building. Computer modelling techniques enable designs to be 'built' at full scale and resolved in great detail. This type of representation was compared with built models, also at full scale, but using a mix of model making and real materials. At one school students interpreted actual working drawings from architects and at the other school, students worked from theoretical designs. By exploring the translation from idea to building using a range of representational interventions, this research creates a nexus between current issues of representation and design/construction research.
