This course explores the use of diagrams and metaphors in addressing problems of representation, translation and reconstruction across two different symbolic media: language and architecture. The texts chosen as departure points for our work -- Virgil's Aeneid and Ovid's Metamorphoses -- have provided both narrative and aesthetic foundations for western art for almost two thousand years. Throughout our work we will seek to capture aspects of their meaning by proposing architectural constructs: design concepts, diagrams, drawings or models.
