Architect, M.Arch, OAA
This post is part of our summer 2018 blOAAg series, Summer Sketches: Capturing the Essence of Architectural Ideas.
Sketching as a means of recording a place is a meaningful way to engage in foreign surroundings. Part of a series of drawings done while taking the train through Rajasthan, India, these sketches mark memorable events on many of our stops. The time required stretches out these moments creating openings for unique occurrences and spontaneous interactions. As an architect, setting aside time to observe and reflect on the spaces we engage with is an important aspect of visiting somewhere new.
