This thesis attends to normative and repressive problems within representation to show disobedience through the exploration of misbehaving illustration. This project is designed as a collection of three chapters. Each highlights and challenges specific themes relevant to the chosen three architects, Bernard Tschumi, Francis Ching, and Graphic Standards, and the behavior of their representation. The goal is to contest these male voices by replacing them with female perspectives that misbehave. The exploration of narrative and illustration emphasizes the harm that mundane representation creates. By co-opting their modes and methods in misbehaving ways, these stories call into focus the way that well-behaved protocols are excepted throughout representation.
