Irrational Matrix:
Using Daniel Libeskind to question the role of drawing in architectural representation.

In my dissertation, I aim to study both Chamber works and Micromegas as drawings that push the role of representation in architectural drawing. These drawings have sparked intriguing discussions amongst commentators due to how they oppose the conventions of an architectural drawing of the time. While Chamber Works provides an overarching narrative regarding the connection between architecture and music, Micromegas explore fluctuating form and space. By referring to the descriptions and analogies made by Libeskind and by making an account of some of the more significant critics to have commented on his work, I aim to dissect the drawing works that made him a leading avant-garde figure in architecture.
