Orange Sky : Love of Drawing in the Second Machine Age
Orange Sky: Love of Drawing in the Second Machine Age Damon Leverett, Architect, Artist and Designers talks about his experience as a child growing up in urban Detroit during the late-1960's. He soon discovers through childhood friendships, the joy of sketching and drawing and transforms the experience into a lifelong vocation and profession working as an architect. Damon also walks through his personal experiences of transitioning through multiple drawing technologies over a thirty year period and emphasizes the value of drawing as a wonderful experience rather than just a tool for production. This book is a follow up to Damon's first publication: "Light Engines and Other Architectural Experiments" in 2005 which covers his works from 1990-2000. The exhibits presented in Orange Sky represents digital sketches and drawings from 2004-2014.
