Italy, Baseball, DC, Australia: Holiday Card Sketches
NEWS | DECEMBER 2017
Washington, District of Columbia
We’ve been looking for ways to show how diverse our staff is, and to learn more about the passions and skills that each member of the MV+A team has to offer. For our holiday card this year, we gave each architect a square and asked them to draw a simple sketch of a favorite building. The unique set includes different takes on perspective, unique buildings all over the world, and striking choices about how to best represent a building with a single sketch. Submissions included the minimal Palazzo Terragni, an example of Italian Rationalism; Wrigley Field, an example of someone’s love for baseball; and the Sydney Opera House. See the individual sketches and the final card, below.
