Architecture Drawings – The Power of Lines
Original content on e-architect – article by by Dr. Peter Magyar – a series of drawings:
The Power of Architectural Lines
– The first drawing is one of my favorites: The Nerd Cat. Drawn by a six year old daughter of one of my former students.
– The second drawing, a true one-liner is mine, which was shortlisted and exhibited in Berlin at the World Architecture Festival Architecture Drawing Prize. Unfortunately, they shortened the text to “between the lines”. The original, as my credo, was like this:
Between the lines, matter withstands gravity of body and thoughts.
The next three drawings are also freehand drawings, but made with an Apple-Pencil on an iPad-Pro tablet. My chair-design, and my sketch of two of my recent projects of my students (Eric Jensen and Jiayi Wang).
The next is an old pen drawing, part of a process, and the Villa La Rotonda (near Vicenza, Italy, designed by Andrea Palladio), a finger drawing on my small screen iPhone (at the site).
The last poster and text (below) is really the essence of my belief and method.
Just a few words about the events of last year, which was the 50th anniversary of my graduation: I had a one man show in Budapest, “The roots of Infinity” at the Palace of Arts, and have been elected to a Fellow of RIBA.
