Archcember | Storytelling Through Illustrations

Archcember | Storytelling Through Illustrations

All designed objects, whether conceived by an architect, artist, graphic designer, industrial designer, or landscape architect, tell a story.

Their stories can sometimes be discerned easily, and at other times need to be discovered through thoughtful consideration. The story can be as simple as a metaphor or as complex as a novel.

Just as the adage goes, you can't judge the object (book) by its exterior (cover). The richness of the object is in its content.

Architects are natural storytellers – it’s a process that is inherently built into our creative process and when used properly, it’s one of the very best tools in our tool bag.

The Challenge:
Every story or narrative is a series of events tied together into a plot. The key is to display your concept in the most appropriate visual form for the project in question

The Archcember challenge is about telling your story through illustrations (sketches/doodles/paintings or computer generated illustrations and graphics) related to architecture.

  • We will give you 1 word every two days and you have to tell us a story through your illustration and an article of 200 words which justifies your concept.
  • Not necessarily, but if the illustrations respond to the theme of the contest i.e. Architecture, it would be much more meaningful.
  • Your Sketches can narrate stories through functional or explanatory, social, investigative and sarcastic approaches or comic strips
