Different Viewpoints What does the multiplicity of viewpoints say about the spectator’s freedom/limitations? Discuss: Slide 1 This is James Stirling’s axonometric sketch for a competition for a museum design. This is done in the worm’s eye view. As you can see, the spectator can see the structure from below the building, which is a view that spectators most often do not get the chance to see. Slide 2 This is a more bird’s eye view of Gae Aulenti, which incorporates some sectional projections. Notice the differences in the information given from this sketch as compared to the sketch from the previous page. What kind of details do you think, in this type of representation, are more useful/less useful compared to other perspectives? From below, the viewers have a chance to understand the layout of the structural elements of the building, from above the viewer has the plan and is able to oversee the elements in the structure. Axonometry allows for a freedom to be established because the structure can be seen from all different types of viewpoints. As opposed to the perspective, in which there is one static view, and to the orthographic representation, where there are three separate views not fused together, axonometry is the only form of representation that allows for a multiplicity of viewpoints in a simultaneously.
