UFA Cinema in Dresden, Germany

Above is a negative of my sketch of the UFA Cinema in Dresden, Germany by Coop-Himmelblau. My friends and I left Hannover on Sunday 5th June 2005 at 1644hrs, bound for Dresden. It felt calm and relaxed, like Sunday evenings usually do. Great project!

Norddeutsche Landesbank in Hannover

Above is one piece of an exercise I did in 2006 using photos of the Norddeutsche Landesbank in Germany. My graphic design skills have improved a lot since then. Memories of the building, the exercise, and the place made me happy… so I thought I’d post it.

The Norddeutsche Landesbank by Behnisch Architekten,building was completed in 2002, on Hannover’s Friedrichswall, a street connecting the city centre with residential neighbourhoods to the south. The building measures a total of 40,000 square metres and provides office space for a staff of about 1,500. It starts out as a regular platform, from which a seventeen-storey building rises about seventy metres into the air, divided into horizontal blocks set at different angles. A light coat of steel cables and glass covers the projecting parts of the building: a “stretched flexible structure” of the kind normally used in suspended roofs, capable of resisting tensile stress.

UFA Cinema in Dresden, Germany

Above is a sketch of the UFA Cinema in Dresden, Germany by Coop-Himmelblau. This was part of my 6 week back-packing adventure throughout Europe in 2005. I find the building to be very masculine with its composition of angles, structural glass, and concrete; light and dark; transparent and opaque. Hope to see you soon again!
