High Line Building Sketch Anthony Acevedo 10.2017

It was my first time ever sketching structures outside, being cleaved by the sun’s rays, and observed by many curious tourists. While simultaneously being timed, it was for sure a fun exercise and workshop. I only wish the schedule would not interfere with my Friday class, and I would definitely go again!

It was a beautiful October day to sit in the MoMA sculpture garden for a few hours and sketch. Three students and I concentrated on a one-point perspectival view of Yoshio Taniguchi’s architectural ensemble surrounding the garden. We worked on recognizing the vanishing point, the horizon line, and the discipline of observing the relationship of the parts, including the negative spaces between things. While the rigorously gridded space seemed like it should be straightforward, the proportions and complexity of the elements were challenging to “get right”.
