Architectural drawings aren’t especially beautiful as a rule, but those that Ness Lafoy created during her degree are simply too interesting for us to pass up. She’s just graduated with a BSc in Architecture from the Bartlett UCL, and these images were created as part of a project for which she designed a conceptual master plan entitled Helsinki Archipelago Town Hall.
She explains: “The town hall provides a mainland base for the many residents of the tiny islands in the archipelago surrounding Helsinki. A safe place to spend the night on the mainland, a space for the island council to meet and a hub to encourage the continued inhabitation of the islands by making them a practical place to live.”
While I’d love to pretend to know more about the architectural elements of the project, Ness’ intricately rendered lines and striking compositions had me enthralled, and they do a fine job of representing the tricky art of architectural illustration to an art and design crowd.
