Keeping hold of ideas

inspiration board

I've been in a bit of a panic over the last few days about my final project. Sometimes I make things a lot more complicated in my head than they are in reality. I'm designing a concept for a building. It's not going to be built so I don't need to obsess over the structural details. The narrative behind the design is much more important. I need to get a grip. Why am I making it so hard for myself?!

I decided to make a board of all the images that influence me (projects by Steven Holl, David Chipperfield, Curry Hyde, Benedek and Lakos) so when I draw a blank I can just look to my right and see a whole load of ideas jumping out at me. I hope it works!

I love this inspiration board. I can't wait to get my life back in order and start adding to my inspiration binder again.

I love your space, it's so open and clean.

I hope you're less stressed out. I'm sure once you start the sketching you will be happy. Just don't think too much and be free with your creativity, good luck!

Best of luck with your final project! I haven't been keeping up with blogs lately, and I feel bad for missing out on yours -- everything you've done lately looks amazing! It was a real treat to come over here and see all of your photography from lately, and your sewing projects as well. :)
