In altered perspective: the representation of objects in perceived space - In recent years we have seen students of architecture experience increasingly greater difficulty in representing objects in space. There may be many causes of this. Certainly one of them is the progressive loss of the habit as protagonists of using the language of graphics as a tool for communication. There has then been a change in the iconic context with the assumption since infancy of figurative models, which are basically without depth or with an altered, degenerated perspective. It is also reasonable to consider that changes in visual and spatial abilities are also due to a different way of using both represented and real images. Taken together these factors are of interest to different disciplines and as such subject to debate. It must be added that if it should be demonstrated that changes have effectively taken place in the capacities of the very young to perceive and therefore depict space, then it is advisable to rethink the methods of teaching drawing as a means of delineating and planning architectural design.
