Looking Up

One of the most important things I learnt during my architectural degree was to look up at buildings. For most of my life, before I studied, I never really looked up or took in the full scale of the building. When you do start to, you take in that other dimension of a building, you see the detailing, how it is structured and it’s mass.

While walking through Squirrel Park, I realised I never really look up at the trees we walk pass. In a similar way, looking up, you take in the detail of the canopy- it’s delicate web of leaves (in this case pine needles) and branches.
