Classic Architecture Studies – Chema Pastrana

It’s often rare that we get a glimpse into the inner workings of a architects own personal sketch pad.  Chema Pastrana however posted his classical architecture studies for all to see and we couldn’t pass the opportunity to share.  There is nothing more personal then the side notes, and quick sketches, and playful thoughts etched in our sketch pads.  Professors always push for you to sketch more, and in reality what they should be asking you is to take a break and really just play on the paper.  It is through this playful sketching where the most provocative ideas arise.
