I draw architecture and 3D constructions in the same way as Carl Linnaeus classified plants and animals. I study and collect different kinds of structures, identify their characteristics and translate them into drawings. These drawings are then ordered in classes, families and species.

This website contains a taxonomy which orders all theses species. They all fall under the general kingdom of Non-functional Structures and are subsequently organized in 5 classes: Muted Structures, Noble Structures, Ambiguous Structures, Speculative Structures and Subversive Structures. Running through these classes are 7 conditions that describe formal aspects of them: Simplified, Layered, Modular, Transparent, Wrapped, Dissolved, Fractured and Scaffolded Structures.

Below you can find a selection of the drawings.
