Alberti's Method - One Point Perspective

Made by Eunice Oh

Created: October 13th, 2014


I used Alberti's method to draw the lobby of the CFA building on campus. It was definitely difficult to include my entire view of the lobby from where I sat. I placed the vanishing point on the page, which altered the view of the CFA lobby in my drawing. With the vanishing point on the page, the perspective became more dramatic and more pronounced. The entrance now looked farther back than it actually was with the difference in perspective. Using Alberti's method, the vanishing point was placed on the far right side of the page and lines were drawn from there to find the position of each observed object.
