In February, we launched our Parti Sketch Competition, where we invited students, architects and designers to post a parti diagram of a project, favourite building, or their own space, on Instagram with a short caption.
We received many amazing entries and were impressed by the variety of submissions – each entry was unique and revealed an insight into the individual designer’s thought process. It reinforced to us the significance of diagrams at all stages of the design process – as tools for analysis, design development and communication.
We were inspired by the range of media submitted (drawings, paintings, models, videos), which forced us to question our own presuppositions about the nature of the parti. As a result, we will be challenging ourselves to think, draw and create in different ways during the design process!
Thank you to everyone who entered the competition – we hope you enjoyed the process of delving into the parti as much as we enjoyed seeing your diagrams!
