ABOUT CABINS PROJECT
For nearly a half-year I had the pleasure to work closely with Taschen art director on achieving more than 60 opening chapter illustrations, plans and symbols for an architecture book by Philipp Jodidio, titled CABINS. This big book of 463 pages aims to provide an overview on contemporary cabins from all around the world.
For me the topic of cabins deeply resonates with child’s imagination. I mean for children as for adult it’s an unlimited source of fantasy. This fact was very important to me, so I tried to keep it in mind while I was drawing with the aim to offer an idyllic vision of each project.
The main challenge in this project was for me, making a glorified vision that inspire, invite you in a virtual journey, while trying to convey each cabin’s unique character, and remaining faithful to the original cabin architecture.
The outdoor environnement was to my mind as much important as the cabin itself. That’s why most of the illustrations are full of details on nature. I focused my sensitivity on lights and colors to offer a different light mood for each cabin in harmony with it’s environnement.
I tried to create dreamlike pictures, between realism and fantasy, where each cabin is celebrated in it’s nature’s jewell box.
