Abstract

Ubiquitous, basic digital modelling tools are currently deployed with relative ease in architecture schools during the course of first year studies. While these first architectural projects essays sometimes communicate matter with already quite impressive professional outlooks, a certain disparity between the various intentions and the student’s actual grasp of the many basic architectural element’s interplays of form and space can become apparent.

To alleviate, calibrate and cognitively fine-tune the potential for more acute and
lasting cognitive understandings of (scaled) body and space morphologies in a seemingly scaleless manipulative universe, simple, rapid-paced analogue sketching tool can be introduced to supplement a purely digital approach.
Inserted casually, yet with almost acupunctural precision during digital coursework, the simple analogue sketching tools present a wide variety of options for speedily produced material for various attuned and conscious, supplementary oblique architectural assessments.

The simple procedure(s) advance a certain amount of beneficial cognitive
complementarities: Beneficial interplay-changes between right and left brain concentrations; Change of tactility (whole hand gestures v/s mouse directed fixed “digits”); Fast production of simple material to re-assess various architectural spatial conditions; Fast toggling between scale/scaleless, conceptual-abstract/ and figurative/concrete; The fast exercises permit various interactive dealings, opening up to diverse inter-active discussions and a more conscious re-plays of material transcending the dichotomies of digital/analogue.
