ARCH 4509/6509: MONOGRAPH
A portfolio is comprehensive; a monograph is compromised.
A portfolio is objective; a monograph is subjective.
A portfolio is universal; a monograph is personal.
A portfolio explains; a monograph mystifies.
A portfolio hastens; a monograph hesitates.
A portfolio is slick; a monograph is slippery.
A portfolio is honest. A monograph is deceptive.
A portfolio is graphic. A monograph is therapeutic.
A portfolio is defensive. A monograph is adaptive.
— From Ada Tolla and Giuseppe Ligano, LOT-EK ADV STUDIO V
The MONOGRAPH has traditionally been a device through which an architect's or an artist's body of work has been disseminated to a specific audience — a medium through which a distillation of the author's principal ideas and artifacts are envisioned and presented. Architecture is mainly understood through images, and the MONOGRAPH is a medium through which the concepts embedded in these images are not only framed and interpreted, but given greater depth and meaning. And it is the design of the MONOGRAPH that becomes the vehicle of that meaning.
