The Warehouse of Unfinished Ideas_2020
Selected by Architizer as a top ten Commended Drawing of the Year for the #OneDrawingChallenge celebrating the best examples of architectural storytelling In Architecture’s biggest drawing competition.
The nature of the creative process consists of a chain of smaller ideas, tangents, and design iterations. These concepts are essential stepping stones leading to the final output. Some might argue, they are meaningful works in their own right.
I often imagine unfinished architectural ideas archived within a vast warehouse as a collection of physical prototypes and miniature models. They loom in their various scales and unfinished states, waiting for the opportunity to be applied to future projects. These fragments are studied, reflected upon, and referenced. They exist prior to a project's impetus, and remain long past it's completion. Will these undeveloped ideas lie dormant for eternity, or will they one day have the ability to be deployed to their full potential? Do they truly matter if they are unseen or unfinished? For now they wait, eternally housed within the warehouse of the mind.
