Abstract

As a tribute and in relation to the centenary of the birth of artist Mathias Goeritz (Danzig 1915—Mexico, 1990), the sculpture “Snake” which Goeritz made for his Experimental Museum “el Eco” in Mexico City in 1953, was used as the starting point of the course work. (Architectural Representation III ETSA Barcelona from 2014–2015). The goal of the course was to motivate students in their creative ability and imagination in order to achieve, not only instrumental solvency in different techniques of Architectural Representation, but also the initiation of a visual culture that will be enriched during their professional life.
