Helmut Jahn drawings | 1991

Given the sleek high-tech look of his buildings, few would associate Jahn with the timeless act of scribbling. He is, however, an obsessive draughtsman for whom drawing is an indispensable activity. Jahn’s drawing is fueled through building and his is a practical imagination, one that preys on a particular project’s constraints. His flights of fancy are rarely an end in themselves but are almost always related to solving problems.
