for estudio extramuros‘ participation in the ‘100 day project’ — an international call for creatives to engage in a series of work daily, without interruption — the spanish studio has illustrated a different building or architect every day. without limitations on graphic style, type of architecture or final appearance, the team gave the project a challenging twist by restricting their work time to under an hour.

la fábrica, ricardo bofill |  day #11




ranging from highly realistic to strikingly abstract, the collection illustrates both small details and architectural plans, as well as entire re-imaginations of the original project. ‘it was not about producing a masterpiece everyday, but to create a body of work little by little,’ describe the team. additionally, the project forced the studio to be creative every day and see each drawing through — even if the result was less than memorable. ‘it made us value the power of steady work and discipline, rather than wait for a sudden spark of creativity. sometimes the illustrations look almost like photographs, and many others are very different from the real building, or don’t look like a building at all, but in every image we tried to tell two stories: the project, and what made that project special for us.’
