andré chiote celebrates the architecture of schmidt hammer lassen for its 30th birthday

 

in 2016, international architectural firm schmidt hammer lassen architects (SHL) celebrates its 30th anniversary. established in 1986 by morten schmidt, bjarne hammer and john f. lassen, the firm now has offices in aarhus, copenhagen, london, shanghai and singapore, and has been highlighted in recent years with a number of distinct projects around the world. to mark the important date, SHL has selected a set of 6 of its most emblematic buildings to be represented through the personal vision of porto-based illustrator andré chiote.

the collection — which is comprised of six minimal, subtly colorful illustrations — highlights the bold textures and strong lines that have come to define schmidt hammer lassen’s architecture. having previously illustrated a series for the brazil world cup, and represented his favorite libraries around the world, andré chiote has become adept at saying a lot with just a little. in his illustrations, chiote focuses on specific perspectives and exterior impressions to simply and effectively demonstrate the flavorful personalities of the buildings as a whole.
