Two-dimensional and non-scallable representations of space. Unlike the drawing, the image is exclusively discoursive. Used both in branding and as a communicator of space or scenes in life. Image vignettes can be static or moving. They seek, through conveying a sense of space and culture, to advance a connection to the broader public and further the works intellectual project.

The rendering is a still, constructed image intended for representation rather than construction. This includes the unmeasured perspective, which aims to mimic our actual experience of space. Its use in architectural representation is often to convey the spatial experience or feel of a building. Less precise means of representing space include the collage which is made up of fragments of visual information, that carry with them the connotations of their original context. However, when interwoven into a composition, these heterogenous connotations form a coherent meaning.

The photograph is the most common way of representing built work. The advent of social media as made the photograph even more pervasive in society. Aerial photography and more recently satellite imagery have provided a new lens for the discursive image. The top down view, or fifth façade, previously invisible to the viewer invites new interpretations of built form, and marks the most radical new way to depicting a project since the discovery of perspective.
Moving Image
The moving image is more immersive than the photograph offering the ability to look around work in time. In the video the user does not control the camera but technological including virtual reality allow users to control the movement of the camera through a project. Often first planned as a storyboard or montage, the moving image often begins in still life. 
Diagram The diagram is a graphic nonrepresentational view of a project. By rendering abstract ideas about architecture it serves as a instructional tool where the user can focus on key pieces of information described in the image. 
Rendered Drawing The rendered drawing blurs the line between the drawing and the image. It uses a scaled drawing as a base to represent both actual dimensions and spatial experiences simultaneously in one image.
