Drawing the Ground, Layering Time - Work of Palmbout Urban Landscapes (Rotterdam)
Drawing for the city is our profession. We practice it passionately, and in awe. Relations between architecture, infrastructure and landscape change continuously. Especially delta landscapes, with their dynamics, unpredictability and complex ecology sharply challenge urban design. We approach it with a combination of conceptual thinking and craftsmanship, with relaxed logic and unpretentious poetry.
