Instead of making a graphic sheet that represents an object, can we make an object that represents a graphic sheet? The translation from graphic to object and object to building is brought to the forefront of this investigation by trying to maintain the characteristics of the graphic while doing so at a full-scale resolution. 

More Information 

Full Resolution Studies (FRS) are too big to be a model but small enough to fit in a room. Unlike a mockup, the FRS is not a small chunk of a larger piece. The study is the project. They consist of 1:1 details and building elements like doors, windows, stairs, roofs, walls, colors, materials, etc. The other elements are graphic and didactic such as hatches, patterns, lines, dashes, and dots. There are two attempted goals for a Full Resolution Study. First, to understand and resolve the translation from a graphic sheet with color and 2D linework into a physical 1:1 object while trying to maintain as much graphic information on the object as possible. The second being a conceptual relationship to the work by understanding the translation from a graphic sheet to a model to a full-scale study and trying to maintain similarities between the three. In this project, a model made from gatorboard was used. The ultimate aim of this study was to investigate and understand the translation of graphic representation into material thickness.
