20 Projects Explained Through Architectural Gifs

THEATER by  Darina Lisitskaya

 

As old school as they are, GIFs can still be a low tech, highly shareable solution to communicate an architectural idea. If you are searching for fun new methods of architectural representation, look no further! The ‘Graphics Interchange Format’, or GIF, is a perfect tool.

In order to explain projects and design decisions properly, architects must use often rely on creative representation techniques instead of words. It’s part of the job. The quality of drawings - simple, complex, or anything in between - is fundamental for the correct reception of the ideas. Digital media has enabled new ways of representation including animation and adding a new dimension in a single image: processes. 

Animated gifs can provide the same amount of information in constructive terms as a section, program distribution as a diagram and main decisions as a master plan, while at the same time showing the progress and chronology of the project.

Through these animations I hope you will have a greater appreciation of Architecture. Enjoy!
