“Architecture is a form of art, or at least this is how it looks from the outside; but from the inside, we know that architects are becoming more and more building technicians, really… Art is in a way meant to compensate for the lack of art in the architecture that we do. The ultimate goal remains to combine the two,” believes Dan Hogman.

An avid architectural and urban sketcher, Hogman documents the built environment with a keen eye and a good hand, capturing the subject's macro components and the minute details in a unique perspective.

In the video here, Hogman shares the process of creating an element of a soft landscape - the shrubs - as presented in elevation. Each sketch reveals cross sections of patterns and details in immaculate precision to form and scale. He shares the art of creating these components, no matter how small they are, to add depth to the architectural compositions.

And as Hogman puts it rightly, entourage matters!
