PIAZZA DEL CAMPO, SIENA, VIEW FROM THE STAIRCASE LEADING DOWN TO IT.
JUSTIN NG, HARVARD GSD
STUDENT AWARD OF DISTINCTION AIP 34

My sketchbooks are part of an on-going project in which I record my travels. At a time when screens are becoming the
interface for much of life's events, being on-location exposes me to the nuances of light, sound and smell, qualities of
architecture that cannot be experienced digitally. In the process of recreating on paper what lies before my eyes, I become
intimately acquainted with my subject, forcing me to observe, rather than gaze. Unlike orthographic drawings that focus on
objective reality, sketching en plein air embraces the human perspective along with emotions and empathy, enabling the
exploration of the spatial and visual richness of cities, which I believe to be a step towards the re-humanization of our cities.
The scale of the Piazza del Campo is striking. My drawing was an attempt to capture how the city hall relates to the piazza
and the smaller streets around it.

DENNIS ALLAIN, MAXX BURMAN JUROR AWARD, AIP 34, DIGITAL

Although I started my career with
natural drawing methods, I have,
over the past two decades, almost
exclusively used digital art media.
These have helped me capture an
artistic expression that seems to suit
my creative intentions.
Traditionally artists start with very
rough sketches to begin forming their
idea. For me the process typically
begins in a 3D environment. Often,
a photo or image reference from the
internet sparks my imagination.
The hand drawings of Lebbeus
Woods reveal small textures and
construction lines that become part of
his architectonic fabric. Digital painting
tools can mimic these subtleties but it is
the artist who chooses whether or not to
notice them.
