Architects' Sketchbook IV: Dorell.Ghotmeh.Tane

Sketches, photographs and models expressing ideas are the latest extracts from a new book that documents the creative process of designers

‘Initially we illustrate idea through words and sketching as well as layering the sketches…Research, sketches, models, words are finaly forced into crystallisation because they reach a certain level of development.’

‘At this point what has been imagined has to be proven possible. Now, the design ideas are again contested and challenged, but we are pleased to see that the initial sketched inspirations often remain until the maturing of the project, to become the tie between the different aspects - function, materials and technical constraints.’
