The Schematical design, developed from a series of drawings which originally represented the standard drawing conventions of plans, sections and elevations of a landscape traditionally recognised as a tower block. The drawings where dissected and repositioned to allow an abstract landscape to emerge from the process by creating an organised drawing layout from an original chaos, which could eventually be read as an aerial view drawing of the indented building design, a landscape or as a componant.

Further development involved exploring the depths of the dissected drawing and investigating further beyond the plan, introducing contrasting axes, service elements, components, use, function and depth.

By orbiting into the three dimensional plain and interjecting a mix of architectural language and transcribing a journey, the drawing become a functioning  landscape as opposed to a graphic visualisation.
