Plan-Section hybrid drawing by Diller+Scofidio for their Slow House Project (1989).  Computer-generated print on frosted polymer sheet with graphite and colored ink mounted on painted wood with metal.  An interesting take on the project, with explanation can be found here.

WHEN I heard the learn’d astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them;
When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick;
Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.

When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer
