my take on illustrating Bruno Zevi’s 4th dimension in space

While visiting Italy and France with a group of students I made this sketch — shortly after finishing our visit — to illustrate the spatial experience of Carlo Scarpa’s Castelvecchio Museum in Verona.

These are the kinds of drawings that I enjoy the most, the ones that captures a building’s essence (space and its sequence). I understand they might be hard to comprehend by the untrained eye — in comparison with a traditional two-point perspective — but their purpose is not to portray a picture but to serve as a learning tool.
