Is the representation of architecture still architecture? I strongly believe that yes, it is an „act of architecture“.They both share the rules of geometry as a common language although not the laws of physics. Images have no weight and are not subject to gravity. They are the first vision, the one that is the closest to the mind. In a way, they are architecture in its most pristine form. We will wander through the history of architectural imagery to understand its codes, its powers and its limitations based on examples and case studies, more specifically related to urbanism and prospective visions of the city.
