Inspired by the storytelling of Afghan carpets, the approach to this project was to find a contemporary architectural-related narrative. The design process started by copying historical and modern architectural plans.

A series of watercolours and pencil drawings emerged. The transcription to 3d software and traditional prototyping also investigates metaphorical and illusionary qualities of a three-dimensional illusion.
