Laguarda.Low Senior Associate, Jeongin Kim was selected as this year’s winner of the Architectural Record Cocktail Napkin Sketch Contest. His cityscape titled View of the World from an Architect in New York was chosen from over 2,000 submissions.
Sketching by hand is an essential part of his creative process – “It lets my stream of consciousness flow, and allows me to observe my work and thoughts at the same time.”
We couldn’t agree more – congratulations Jeongin!
Focused on the open evolution of ideas, we explore the preliminary design stages of a project through hand sketches, study models, and other manual manifestations. This charrette process emphasizes the importance of verifying all possible avenues of an approach before launching into the most appropriate alternative.
