The evolving drawing

This extraordinary drawing spans the duration of the building project and captures the many forms created in the space.

Liam says: As the site changes physically I regularly return to the drawing and work back into its surface, adding and removing certain elements as they appear and disappear from site. Many of these elements remain within the drawing long after their departure - therefore influencing the new forms that have physically replaced them on site.
