Forrec Wins Three Awards of Excellence in Architecture in Perspective 28
May 1st, 2013 by Sumit Singhal
Forrec is proud to announce that three members of its team received Awards of Excellence in the 28th annual Architecture in Perspective competition, held by the American Society of Architectural Illustrators, in Oakland California on February 23. The official announcement has just been released.
The winning entries were created by members of three Forrec Studios:
Steve Thorington, Creative Studio: This digital aeria Iillustration of Thanh Xuan Park in Hanoi, Vietnam, shows the three-storey sunken courtyard, whose central pool is connected to the lake on the left, by a cascading watercourse. The bright sunlight and the rich greens, blues and earth tones create a clear sense of the excitement of the scheme and humid subtropical warmth of this thousand-year-old city.
Jan Jurgensen, Landscape Studio: This self-commissioned ink and pencil crayon drawing gives an enigmatic eye-level impression of what Toronto’s University Avenue might feel like with a central median of birch trees in place of the scattered garden that currently exists.
Danny Drapiza, Architectural Studio: The Power long City Plaza (Xiamen, China) sectional elevation has been delineated and textured using an old-fashioned draughting pen. The appeal of the drawing lies as much in the intricate hand-rendered textures as in the exotic architecture and dramatic landscape that is being portrayed. Many of Forrec’s clients appreciate the ability of pen-and-ink drawings to convey the tactile qualities of a proposed environment.
The American Society of Architectural Illustrators (ASAI) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and recognition of the art, science and profession of architectural illustration. The Architecture in Perspective competition and exhibition – open to submissions from professional illustrators, architects and designers from around the world – has one major objective: to recognize and disseminate excellence in the art of architectural illustration.
