Sketching Europe
Field Sketches and Place Studies
 
From February to May of 2010, I spent time studying the architecture and landscape architecture of Western Europe. Part of our requirement, was to complete a detailed sketch book of the various structures and spaces we visited. Some of the more intricate sketches were completed on my own time taking an average of 45-60 mins. Some of the quicker, looser sketches were done during site visits with time restrictions enforced by the professor, usually 15-30 mins. These sketches were all completed while fully immersing myself into the environment, culture, and surroundings of each space. 
During our Study Abroad program, I spent time in London, England - Dublin, Ireland - Edinburough, Scotland - Paris, France - Rome, Italy - Barcelona, Spain - Berlin, Germany - Munich, Germany - Athens, Greece and Malta.
