From my sketchbook: Ski lodge


20120130.1952

From sketches originally drawn in 2000 / 2001, re-discovered recently while cleaning up the studio and rifling through old sketchbooks.

The ski lodge grows out of the mountain, an upwardly thrusting rock. It is resolved as two separate volumes, with different functions, orientations and materials. One volume comprises services; the other comprises living spaces. One volume addresses the street; the other addresses the sun. One volume is heavy, made from concrete and stone; the other is light, made from timber and glass.
