    Drawings for Manhattan | Jeff Konigsberg | Socks Studio

    New York based artist Jeff Konigsberg is familiar with different drawings techniques and subjects. His works range from purely abstract shapes and intricate compositions of lines and wires to more documentary images with a surreal tone.

    His series “Drawings for Manhattan” imagines a dystopian outcome after Hurricane Sandy. The natural catastrophe becomes the starting point for a division of the city into different areas as the gigantic walls erected to prevent a damage turn into a real tool for segregation.

    In the artist’s words:

    “In the days following the flooding of NYC, I began this series of drawings. The first 7 of these images are directly in response to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. I decided to take the concept of sea walls to the extreme.The remaining drawings reflect a more paranoid outlook. They’re about walling off sections of any city into self-governing City States. The walls contain and prevent damage from a range of real and perceived threats.”

    A Visionary at the Age of Reason | Jean-Jacques Lequeu | Socks Studio

    Jean-Jacques Lequeu (Architect, 1757-1825) worked in France at the same time of Etienne-Louis Boullée (1728-1799) andClaude-Nicolas Ledoux (1736-1806) and shared with them his faith in science and similar visionary approach, but not an equal fame. His research was even more unorthodox and imaginative, if possible, as his eccentric designs combined completely reinvented elements from several different styles and epochs.

    Lequeu began his career as an architect designing buildings inspired by the antiquity for rich families, but after the Revolution he had to give up the free profession and became a civil servant working as a surveyor and a cartographer until his retirement in 1815. His design skills were then directed to what we might call today “paper architecture“, as he produced several utterly imaginative and extravagant projects that were never realized (and that weren’t even destined to be). Apart from his eccentric creations and “erotic” drawings, he also drew interesting new types for “revolutionary architecture”, along the line of more famous examples by Boullée.

    Environmental Sections. Took a long time to do this. Not the photoshop work itself which took around 6 hours but actually setting up the illustrator file and figuring out the details took a while. The drawing had to show sun angle as well, which is not very visible on the screen but I think it will be much more visible when its printed on an A2. If you have been following my previous posts on the project, you can see that its developed quite a bit from the concept sketch I had after the mid-semester review. I needed to show that it was a semi-conditioned space so I’ve made the interior in the winter section a bit warmer to show how conditioning works. There is a closed greenhouse that’s not connected directly to the housing as seen in my concept sketch but they still kind of work in tandem with each other, otherwise it would have been quite impractical. I haven’t shown any arrows to indicate how the ventilation works but the open louvers in the summer section indicate how the venting works in summer and they’re entirely closed in the winter section. They deciduous trees are good for shading in summer and letting as much light in as possible during winter, by shutting down during winter it and effectively reduces moisture build up which means lesser venting, which in turn means more heat is conserved. And bloody hell I need to get my sleep pattern back on track.
