‘Experiments in Drawing Theory’ investigates the speculative power of drawing in developing an architectural position by analyzing three seminal architectural work: Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s Carceri d’Invenzione series (1745/50 – 1761), Aldo Rossi’s Città Analoga (1976-1981) and Cedric Price’s Fun Palace (1961-1985).

In this course, drawing is not only considered to be a technique or instrument for architectural design but also as an autonomous form of architectural knowledge as well as a concept of critical reflection and innovative thinking. The relationship between drawing and theory belongs to a long and well-established tradition, according to which drawing is seen as a significant instrument of representation, namely in its double function of constituting architectural knowledge and as an act of creative construction, capable of modifying the real and refocusing it within the dimension of theoretical and practical construction - often with a pronounced ideological content. More specifically, herein, it is advanced that the rigorous graphic investigation of these remarkable works can disclose the aspects of their theoretical value that cannot be grasped from the simple observation.
