Chris Wilkinson: Drawing What I See

In this appealing publication, Wilkinson presents the sketches he makes while travelling for business and leisure. His sketches, made with pen, pencil and watercolour, usually focus on inspirational buildings and urban skyscapes. His travels have taken him as far afield as the West Indies, Russia, Egypt, Australia and Japan. Wherever he goes, he finds an hour or two to sit and sketch – whether in a hotel room with a view or on a café terrace with a cappuccino.

Product story

The architect Chris Wilkinson OBE RA founded the practice WilkinsonEyre in 1983. Its projects have included the Gasholders at King’s Cross, the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, and the Gateshead Millennium Bridge.

From the medieval Tuscan town of Lucca to ancient Egyptian architecture, the Sydney Opera House and the skylines of London, Tokyo and New York, Wilkinson introduces each sketch and ruminates on his work, his travels, and the cities and buildings that have most  inspired him.
