03/28: Choisy Axon

A brief look at a continued idea. I had the privilege of giving a brief presentation about my thoughts on void city on Tuesday. Here are a few photos (some repeats) of Ghardaia, with a sketch of the public void. One quick reference to make is that of Auguste Choisy,  known for his axonometric views taken from the ground up. The effect is a bit alienating in that is implies looking through the ground plane, yet humanizing in that it looks up at the building the same way a person inhabiting the space would.
