Zaha Hadid Iconic Hong Kong Tower

April 18, 2010

Photographs capture details. Shooting a photo is easy and convenient to record a scene or event, and with digital technology today, one shoots many photos indiscriminately. Consequently the photograph loses its purpose as a media to convey a concept simply.

Sketching over a photograph the image is simplified to focus on the important features. My layering tips allowed emphasis on the unique design of Zaha Hadid’s, Polytechnic University Iconic Innovative Tower, in Hong Kong. Then, I further simplified Google’s aerial photo of the University to show the site of the Tower. “Less is Always Simply More”

    “HK’s diversity in its landscape and history is reflected in an urbanism of layering and porosity..” Zaha Hadid
