The one thing I love about art is that there are no boundaries, art can be whatever you want it to be. On Thursday evening we headed to Glow Studio’s in Illovo for the exhibition Paper Architects, showing drawings of unrealised buildings that have never made it to construction and actually been built. These are the process drawings and ideas of the great minds of the city.
The show was hosted by Nisha van der Hoven from Boogertman & Partners Architects, in support of the Sun International, CEO sleepout. This was the best way for them to raise funds for the charity
Showcasing archives of hand drawings, which have an art like quality, the show aimed to showcase the thought process of the architect. Architects use drawing as a form of communication, between their clients and their ideas. There was a great play between art and architecture as the drawings were shown within a traditional white cube however showcased in a typical setting of the architectural studio, using tables, walls and plan racks creating an informal environment for people to page through the drawings.
