It has been a while since we started bringing to you sketching tutorials by artist and architect Dan Hogman every week, and we hope they are as much of learning to you as they are to us.
A new destination that he picks each time - sometimes buildings of architectural significance and others glimpses of the people’s interaction with their own cities – unfolds a unique story and brings with us inspirations from all across the world through his tutorials .
This time, Hogman brings to paper a glimpse of the de Young Museum from the sunny San Francisco. The copper-clad memorial museum designed by architectural firm Herzog and de Meuron represents the revival of a building that no longer exists. Named after the city’s newspaperman M.H. de Young, its strikingly porous built mass, a massive public garden, and a 144 feet-high twisting tower contribute to the structure’s monumental image in its context.
Here, Hogman illustrates a quick and crisp view of the building, and all we are left with is to figure out what to admire more – the sketch or the subject. *chuckles*
