At the beginning of the third year of my architecture degree we received a brief to design a mixed-use building complex that combined residential apartments, commercial offices, retail and public space for an existing urban corner site.
During my first site visit I sat down on the opposite side of the road on the diagonal and started to sketch freehand on an A5 pad.
The first four, two-point perspective sketches below are from that first visit and the fifth is a more detailed freehand drawing I did a couple of weeks later using black ink and pencil on A3 paper.

This is the first post in a series of sketch inspired posts showcasing some of my sketches from previous projects or from my own personal visual diaries.
