Time, Travel, Documentation


Catherine Wetzel


While some travel immersive architecture programs focus on ‘drawing from travel’ as a primary component of the academic experience, an alternate approach is to promote independent methods of travel documentation. Encouraging the use of multiple mediums, including the camera of the mobile phone, reconciles the desire to see as much as possible with a productive engagement in the seeing and experiencing of architecture in context. The goal is to have students take ownership of the experience itself through their use of a variety of media.
