About This Class

In this class, an architect by education and a concept designer by profession Elwira Pawlikowska will guide you how to create your very own, imaginary buildings based on centuries of architectural thought. In about 45 minutes, with the help of intricate hand drawings and the whole mass of interesting (and sometimes surprising) facts you’ll gain a better understanding of building structures and elements and learn how to avoid common “traps” in creating building concept designs.

Materials in this class are focused on historical/fantasy domains, but the knowledge provided here can be used in a much broader context.
