October 26, 2018 – In collaboration with the University of Washington College of Built Environments and UW Department of Landscape Architecture, GGN’s is currently presenting Paper to Place, an exhibit of GGN’s drawings and new project photographs by Catherine Tighe. The exhibit is being showcased at Gould Gallery at the University of Washington’s Seattle campus, and an exhibit reception will be held in the gallery tonight, Friday, October 26th, from 6:00-8:00pm. The show will remain on display through December 7, 2018.
Paper to Place explores the critical role drawing plays in GGN’s design process, as tool for both inquiry and discovery, showcasing the evolution of ideas as cycles of sketching and drawings become instructions for physical transformation on site. The exhibit features sketches from numerous different projects, design phases, and designers at GGN. Paper to Place also highlights new project photographs by Catherine Tighe. While her photographs describe the physical, the detail, and texture of the projects’ construction, they equally describe the feel of the space and specific place in the world – the spirit of those original marks and thoughts evoked through drawing.
