Non-Realistic Representation

Ashmolean_2

 

As Utile continues to collect non-realistic modes of architectural representation as potential illustrations for a future book on the subject,  I was sent this image by Rachel Hsu, a student at Yale.  It depicts the proposed renovation of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford by Rick Mather (Mather is also the architect for the renovation and addition to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond).   It reminds me of the illustrations drawn by David Macauley for his delightfully didactic books on the city, infrastructure, and historic buildings.
