2,500 Word Paper – Sydney Opera House
The fourth assignment is a 2,500-word essay which extends the previous assignment’s analyses to interpret the work in relation to its cultural, social, political and environmental contexts, while also understanding the work’s disciplinary autonomy and poetic gestures. How are the project’s forms and spatial relationships meaningful? Whereas the analytical paper (assignment three) comprises a series of related analyses of individual aspects of the project, the interpretive essay offers an overarching argument about the project. The first paragraph establishes the argument, and every subsequent refers back to, and supports, the first paragraph.
