When n>3 : Visualizing Hyper-Dimensional Spaces and Objects
A lecture by Will Shapiro
Visualizing high dimensional objects in low dimensional spaces is a fundamental tool of the architect. Plans, sections, axonometric and perspective drawings project 3 dimensional objects onto the 2 dimensional plane of a sheet of paper. Objects that occupy more than 3 dimensions can be similarly projected and visualized, rendered in 2 and 3 dimensions so as to be visually comprehensible. In this lecture we explore the mathematics behind such projections, and the spatial ramifications they engender.

This lecture is presented as part of the following course and is open to all current members of The Cooper Union:
ARCH 177 COMPUTER GRAPHICS, IMAGE PROCESSING AND VISION
ARC 482B ADVANCED GRADUATE SEMINAR IN TECHNOLOGY
Professor Pablo Lorenzo‐Eiroa
This course researches cognitive problems specific to architecture. Architects incorporate geometry, mathematics and physics, among other disciplinary knowledge to explore novel ideas of space, while architecture did not provide yet any novel material to these disciplines that are investigating multidimensional space. Within this context, the course investigates each class a higher dimension in space, exploring MULTIDIMENSIONALITY.
