Kingspan Benchmark has joined forces with the AJ on a ‘Sketch a Facade’ Competition, to get Chartered Architects and Student Architects sketching.
The AJ invited Alan Dunlop to talk about sketching on 21st March at Kohn Pedersen Fox’s new gallery on Langley Street, London. Alan’s lecture was truly inspiring, showcasing Paul Rudolph, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Kahn, Ed Ruscha and many more. All fantastic pieces of work with their own interpretation, whether it was showing the whole landscape, a focused area, in black and white or full colour. In case you missed it, please feel free to download the presentation here.
Now it’s your turn! It can be any facade, building – iconic, industrial, shed, tower. We want to see what buildings inspire you – whether it’s the shape of the building, the textures, the landscape, you show us.
To enter the competition, please email your sketches and drawings to email@example.com, titling your email ‘Benchmark sketch’, or post them to: Stephanie Geisler, Emap, Greater London House, Hampstead Road, London, NW1 7EJ.
The deadline for entries is Friday 18th May.
The best will feature in the AJ and the winning sketch will receive £500.
The best sketch by a student will win an annual subscription to both the AJ and the Architectural Review.
We wish you the best of luck!
