Interview

Who influences you graphically?

My studies of architecture in belgium influenced me graphically. I was accustomed to working with models and representing the project using photo editing. My inspiration comes from the Flemish offices such as OFFICE, 51N4E, DIERENDONCKBLANKE, URA ….

How could the use of an animated gif influence the way the images are perceived?

I don’t know, I don’t use gif.

What is your take on the architecture competition? How did the format of the competition influence the type of drawings and the individual drawings themselves?

The purpose of the competition was to reflect on the habitat of the future. This is a very broad question, so I decided to give a conceptual answer. I developed a poetic and naive graphic to illustrate this world of the future.

What are the key parameters you work with when creating an image? Are there specific themes you want to convey?

I do not really work with key parameters. For this competition I wanted to accentuate the difference of landscapes between seasons. For that I plated sky paints pictures to create a strong identity to the image.

How did the model help in exploring the proposal?

The model allows to explore the project in 3d and brings a different new reading. For this model I worked something very clean to demonstrate the concept of the project (vertical circulation, horizontal plates, wire structure).
