australian-based architect nick stath has created a series of digital drawings called ‘space, scale, composition and atmosphere’, where he explores these subjects while showing his point of view on contemporary architecture. for him, what we are living today is a representation of excess and abstract forms which produce visual cluster. the images found on this series proposes to counter this trend by stripping architecture back to a minimalist form and placing it within sparse landscapes, paying homage to the once powerful movement of modernism.

‘modernism 2.0’ – a concrete plate dissects a rock formation

 

 

 

the techniques used in generating these images emphasize the importance of positioning buildings within a context, the perspective in which one perceives it, and the scale in relation to the inhabitant and its surroundings. in these imaginary scenes, architecture exists as one that is heavily reliant upon the place in which it situates itself. the result is a series of bold compositions that capture a sense of curiosity and mystery.

‘weight’ – an elevated form emphasising its weight as it becomes detached from the surface

‘view 1.0’ – a view to infinity

nick stath
‘view 2.0’ – the composition creates a sense of mystery by not revealing what the inhabitant perceive

‘un-social housing’ – a series of commission flats amongst a desolate landscape create a sense of danger

‘cave’ – what lies within is unknown, the birds appear to retreat
