Gift Wrap 2012 Mystery Paper #6 (of 7)

November 1, 2012  |  Elements

The sixth teaser for our wrapping paper contest is here...enjoy, and get ready to make your guesses!

For this paper, I wanted to experiment with technical drawings and find a way to show their beauty. To show that they are not only functional, as they communicate constructability and ultimately in that a building is realized, but that they can be appreciated as they are. 

I tried to convey a very structured and exacting process in an unstructured way; to let the drawings live as they are and to relieve them of their purpose.

Also I layered drawings and the calculations together to show that both are needed to produce the buildings in which we live, work, and play every day. Without one or the other, there is no building.
