Sketching out some ideas for a series of paintings in the Bahamas. Here is the Glass Window Bridge in North Eleuthera where the Atlantic Ocean meets the calm bight of Eleuthera. Winslow Homer discovered and painted this natural wonder back in 1885!  #watercolor #eleuthera #drawingontheroad #sketchbookdrawing #glasswindowbridge #harbourisland

Thanks again to Will Jones and @thamesandhudson for including us in their latest book Making Marks / Architects’ Sketchbooks. “While digital technologies have pushed the boundaries of architectural creation, conceiving an original and appropriate design is as challenging as it has always been. As this book shows, however, a recent return to the basic act of putting pen or pencil to paper has produced some of the most successful buildings of the past decade.

Making Marks follows the highly successful Architects’ Sketchbooks, which presented the rich breadth of sketches created by contemporary architects post digital revolution. Taking a post-digital perspective, the sixty renowned architects whose work is collected here show how drawing and new forms of manual presentation have been refined since the reawakening of this basic technique. Revealing why hand-drawing still matters, this global survey presents the freehand drawings, vibrant watercolors, and abstract impressions of a broad and eclectic array of rising talents and well-known names, including Jun Igarashi, Deborah Saunt, Daniel Libeskind, Meg Graham, and Brian MacKay-Lyons, to name but a few. Author Will Jones’s introduction reviews the importance of the physical sketch and its vital role in the creative process.

Spanning diverse approaches, styles, and physical forms, Making Marks is not merely a compendium of the preoccupations and stylistics of current practice, but a rich and varied insight into architectural creativity. (Synopsis by Thames and Hudson.)

Another shot of our exhibition, Feeling Architecture at the University of Miami School of Architecture @u_soa. The show explores specific spatial and atmospheric qualities in architecture that move or affect us emotionally. We are less distracted by form and more interested in how spaces feel – and the “chemistry” of space – meaning how different materials make us feel; what history and memory and patina bring to a place; the importance of lightness, darkness and shadow; and so on. #soa #universityofmiami #exhibition #tropicalarchitecture #materials #feelinghistory #mood #tactile #naturalmaterials

Please come join us tomorrow night (Monday, Feb 4th) at the University of Miami School of Architecture for our lecture and exhibition opening! Brillhart Architecture explores recent works and the autobiographical foundations that have shaped the office. Moving past an aesthetic that is solely about formal expression, the discussion will address the firm’s growing interest in the “chemistry” of space and how buildings feel. The exhibit itself highlights six projects through photographs, models and materials.  #architecture #tropicalarchitecture #atmosphere #materials #history #drawing #painting #feelingarchitecture #cohering #calibrated #mood #wyeth #Whistler #shadows #architecturalexhibition
