grids and lines - introducing green

I watched the RIBA Stirling Prize programme that I'd recorded a week or two ago: Ultra-contemporary buildings to wet my current architecture appetite. The winner, Zaha Hadid's MAXXI was impressive, but I felt it was disappointing on the green front.

Sketchbook work this week has concentrated on capturing something of the lines of these buildings and then starting to play with various ideas that have sprung from the drawings and from thinking about architects' processes of designing.

exaggerated angles

repeated units

simple shapes

smooth lines


natural light

mix of materials

layers of insulation
