Lee Valley Velopark & London Aquatics Centre drawings

Drawing in the late afternoon with an indeterminate light, leading to a pale city-coloured sky. In the making, the drawings seemed to become more and more similar, so that I have to look twice at them to see which is Hopkins Architects Lee Valley Velodrome and which Zaha Hadid’s London Aquatics Centre. With their constrained compositions, these drawings don’t seem as fluid as the Battersea Power Station drawings, but more grounded in the reality of standing in front of these two dramatic buildings.
