10. by Simon Paulais, student in Landscape Architecture in Angers, France / Student in Landscape Architecture in Freising, Germany“This sketch was probably my very first drawing of a natural landscape. I made it during a work exercise on a field day in the frame of my study of landscape architecture in France. It depicts a dry heathland landscape located in Angers. My goal was trying to draw the landscape, as it was and transcribe the atmosphere of this beautiful natural area. I used pencils for this sketch.” 9. by Dragana Jelic. From a small town in Serbia, living in Belgrade studying architecture “I made this drawing two years ago. In that time I was preparing for the Faculty of Architecture, and I wanted to learn something new. I made it with pencil and with freehand. I didn’t use a ruler. Town on the drawing doesn’t really exist it’s part of imagination”. 8. by Ngo Trong Hieu, architect in Binh Duong province, Vietnam “This sketch was drawn with black ink. It’s just a fantasy place, but can easily be found somewhere in my country with dirt roads, banana trees and palms etc. I want to express the beauty of nature in a different perspective – birds eye view”. 7. by Luke Yip “I love visiting old architecture, especially European-Style buildings. As I visited the Western Market, it touched peaked my curiosity and I had to draw it down. The Western Market, renovated in 1991 was converted into a shopping complex, it is an Edwardian-style building featuring shops selling arts and crafts in Hong Kong. I used Lamy Al-Star Ocean Blue Fountain Pen as you can see in the picture”. 6. by Corinna Tai Xin Ci, graduate Landscape Designer in Singapore “It was done on 4th Oct at Huis Ten Bosch, Nagasaki Japan. As one of the selected garden designers for the World Garden & Flower Show 2015, I had this chance to travel here. To keep the fantastic view in my memory forever, I drew this with Pigma Micron in sizes of 01,005 and 03. This is the view outside of the Hotel Europe. Black and white sketch is my beloved style”. 5. by Charl Justine Balanza Darapisa, student in the University of the Philippines Diliman College of Architecture, Quezon City Philippines “The landscape plan was inspired by the flowers festival here in the Philippines. It exhibits the perfect combination of hardscape materials and a planting scheme that is perfectly suited to the ambiance of a wedding and events place. To make it even more interesting, hardscape and vertical elements were added like a gazebo with fine details of flowers and leaves as an arbor, lion statues and numerous water fountains and cascading water features. The final design deeply taps to the potentials of Landscape Architecture to provide an experiential walk-through even within the limits of a small open space”. Drawing Related Articles:
