This abstract axonometric drawing of a marble quarry revels the geometry this man made landscape. Because axonometric projection is used instead of perspective, we can easily read the architecture of the landscape depicted in the drawing.
Experimenting with axonometric projections, in this case a dimetric projection. I made up a grid to serve as a construction template, but I still found it surprisingly difficult to get everything to match up and the forms to mesh the way I envisioned. I’ve had in mind for quite a while now this idea of “temples” composed of stacked and interlocking cubes, almost like pyrite crystals, so I might try it again with traditional perspective techniques.
The bottom two are the original line drawings with the “doors” and stairs removed, rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise and clockwise respectively.
