A streetscape test drawing

A streetscape test drawing

‘This sketch represents a streetscape test drawing. The location is nowhere in particular, but can be applied to a small English town, architecturally. I was just playing with scale and proportion, especially with the rows of houses and adjacent trees. The materials seem to be diverse. The landscape is quite typical but it’s a great base for more daring concepts. I made use of massing and transparency in the sketch style. The medium used was pen on paper.’ No. 8 by Isa Eren Akbiyik, Landscape Architect, Nota Design Landscape Architecture Office Owner

Dark autumn landscape at night in a park
