Architectronic – An Architectural PNG Layer Download
This series of mobile images has been brewing in my mind for some time, both as a work of artistry and as a set of free downloads for others to use. They are in square format and are geared primarily towards the Instagram Community.
About The Series
The series was created using a number of images of architectural floor plans of various buildings in both Stockholm and Helsinki. The architectural designs have their source in the books, The Complete Guide to Architecture in Stockholm, by Helsinki: An Architectural Guide, by Arvi Ilonen.
I used PS Touch to colorize, posterized, and layer the images. I left words and images next to the designs to add a raw scanned feel to the shots. All of this was reworked to derive something new. As art they attempt to capture the mentality, the intellectual planning, behind the design of human spaces in these two cities. As a set of layer downloads, they can potentially add texture, schematical impressions, and an aspect of critical thinking to a work.
