Hearing Voices

Really great to join Seattle Urban Sketchers at the Gates Foundation Visitor Center to mark the World Wide SketchCrawl day!!

I had the really good fortune to get to work on this project for over a year with Olson Kundig Architects.  After over 125 schematic design pencil sketches, it is really interesting and a true pleasure to go to the Visitor Center and see it in action.  Really brilliant design work on the part of OK team and that amazing Alan Maskin.

This is a view from the Voices Gallery.  Every so often, I'd turn my head as I could hear children's voices and people talking, only to realize it was a recording!

    1. HI Jackie, it's simply the power of the one-point perspective! :) Thanks for your comment, though, and it was great to see you there...

  2. Beautiful, Stephanie. This piece draws you in with its warmth just the same way as the actual location does. Kudos!

  3. You have the gift of making a complex scene manageable. Really lovely.

    1. Thanks, Jane, that is a really kind comment! Simplifying the scene just makes things easier in every way :)
