M.Arch student Tyler Lemmon wins award in international drawing competition

Master of Architecture student Tyler Lemmon was awarded a special mention in the Drawing of the Year 2018 competition. Open to architecture students from all over the world, the competition was organised by the Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark. In its sixth year, the competition explored new tendencies in architecture through the use of innovative forms of drawing and mixed media techniques. This year’s theme ‘Shaping New Realities’ asked participants to “invent a story – economic, social, political, artistic, and architectural – that makes us believe, act and shape changes. On all scales and in all environments – from the smallest structure to complex facilities; from rural outskirts to suburban environments; from nature to expanding megacities.” The winners and special mentions were announced on Friday 30th of November.

"This dramatic, yet beautiful drawing both illustrates and explores a provocative solution to daily life. The civil conflicts in Congo force groups of inhabitants to live close to the active volcano. The drawing accepts this condition and proposes solutions, where technology tames the forces of nature, and UN peace soldiers tame the forces of human conflicts, creating a peace circle around daily life. The drawing is beautifully made, well composed with the volcano in the centre and with a depth of narrative layers and perspective that telIs a strong story, with a myriad of sub-stories."
