Architecture Student Revives the Magic of Architectural Hand Sketching Through These Marvelous Sketches
Is it over for the age of free hand sketching and manual drawing? Many people might argue it is. In this age of rapidly advancing digital technologies, new drafting and modeling software with a whole load of handy capabilities keep showing up every now and then. These software products enable the architects to come up with the most complicated ideas and drawings in the shortest time possible.
However, no one can deny that hand drawings have their own charm. Their authentic beauty and essence cannot be mimicked by the firm and faultless digital drawings. Those who have the talent of drawing and the hand that creates magic with merely a pen and paper still exist and are still highly regarded; one of them is Adelina Gareeva.
Gareeva is an architecture student at the Kazan State University of Architecture and Engineering. Her free hand sketches, which she posted on Instagram, has captured the attention of many of the Internet surfers who have an eye for real art. Her sketches feature some local and global landmarks like St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, the Pantheon in Paris, and the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul in Kazan. Those catchy achromatic sketches are all the product of light pencil strokes and heavy contrasting outlines.
Gareeva also shares some of her conceptual drawings, like the sketch of a factory and a fantastic architecture concept which features hints of color, giving it a quite dazzling and effect.
