In a world that is dominated by computer-aided design, Wilkinson still uses drawing as a way to think through ideas to grapple with design problems and as a tool for communication. This unique insight into the design sketches of a hugely influential architect includes drawings for many of his practice’s most ground-breaking works around the world. They include the Stirling Prize-winning Magna at Rotherham, the Dyson Campus at Malmesbury, the Mary Rose Museum and the reconstruction of the King’s Cross Gasholders into some of the most sought-after apartments in London.
The inspiration behind the print included in this volume is to imagine a ‘fictitious urban space with misleading perspective, I like the idea of an abstract architectural drawing’.
