Making Modern Art Into a Landscape: A Creative Process

Sharpening one’s creativity is essential for designers, especially landscape architects. Our work aims to excite and engage audiences in their surroundings, and requires designers to sharpen and drawn from both the technical as well as creative parts of our brains. This project seeks to sharpen the skill sets associated with quality design generation by converting a famous piece of modern art into a 3-dimensional conceptual landscape.

See the steps taken to achieve this outcome:

 

 Step 1:

The original artwork was replicated in colored pencil, then again in black and white using graphite and charcoal.

Step 2:

The piece was then “popped up” into a relief model made out of chip board and acrylic paint.

Step 3:

All previous pieces were considered, and a 3-dimensional conceptual landscape model (inspired by the original piece of modern artwork) was created using solely metal, plastic, and wood.

A true way to sharpen skills and open one’s mind to the possibilities of design!
