Navigating into a venture of a research on an architecture without verticals
Research stage: Intermediate doctoral stage
This paper investigates my conversation with personal drawing projects developed as part of my on-going PhD research titled ‘an architecture without any verticals: an allegorical venture into problematizing the vertical’. My research is an allegorical inquiry to explore and encounter the critically informed, half-imaginary spatial knowledge of ‘an architecture without verticals’. Engaging with the theoretical positions of Bloomer, Irigaray and Cixous, I speculate on the act of pushing the limits of the language in process of problematizing the vertical. By methodological explorations through the acts of writing, drawing and reading, my research navigates into an alternative drawing practice, through which a personal venture from storage to inner hand, from inner hand to dogs, flies, excavation and wax models seeks for imaginative knowledge of an architecture without verticals.
