Unit 1 – A Tale of 3 Cities

Alex Kaiser, Trevor Flynn & Anderson Inge

The Tale of 3 Cities discovers and constructs new realities as an unfolding set of “cities” that weave together the past, present and future. Forces that shape past and future narratives are extracted and explored using drawing methods that are both explorative and experimental, digital and freehand.

The resulting drawings will become the “cities” where we will discover architecture, people and their stories. Each city will have a mentor that provides stimulus and differentiation – an architect (Soane), a writer (Calvino), and an artist (Piranesi).
