GRAPHIC LANGUAGE | A GENESIS FOR MAKING

The graphic material in this site is a significant cross section of a decade's worth of production in architectural design and illustration. It attempts to communicate the purpose and execution of its content, by being graphically explicit on why and how designs are conceived; and ultimately the ways in which they are realized. From the designs of cities and buildings to utilitarian objects and details, graphic communication is the genesis of making; a means to an end, where purpose and execution are the objectives of its message. The following design content is primarily concerned with issues relating to culture / identity / craft / assembly / function / interactivity / bio-logic . and ultimately purpose.
