The Fabric of Imperfection
This is an architectural concept that developed in conjunction with drawing and painting. For years I had been painting and drawing rarely using an eraser. I would just draw darker when I wanted to change an element. That began to evolve into a style that greatly affected (the look of) my drawings. Another outcome was the generation of unexpected ideas through the act of drawing itself. After some years I gave this process and its resulting out come a name. The Fabric of imprefection. This concept has now been borne out in several architectural projects and is very successful. Success being measured by the positive effect on the owners.
Here are a couple of examples:
How do these two things relate? Well that is a good question. In my mind they are related by the process used to achieve each, which is the same. Intrestingly to me that process became clear through painting and useful in Architecture.
