DRAWINGS

The computer-aided line drawings show 9 interior rooms found within the three flats studied in this research. These drawings were made to include as many interior details — including household furnishings and material possessions — that typically make up the setting of a home.

 

Often the interior of a flat is unseen. ‘Home’ is frequently represented by, or understood to be congruent with, ‘housing’ — the exterior of the block in which the flat is located. These drawings make visible what is normally not represented.

 

The details are drawn using the computer, whose algorithms are designed to cope with repetitions in form and geometry common for architecture but are challenged by the idiosyncrasy of interior spaces. The drawings aim to capture differences in identical spaces, negotiated through occupancy and use.
