How do you explain a complex and abstract idea through a simple hand drawing? Architect Mikkel Frost believes that if you can’t tell your story on a single piece of paper, then you are either doing too much or it is too complicated. Watch his talk – and drawings – from TEDxAarhus 2018.
Mikkel Frost is an architect and founding partner of the architectural office CEBRA. He worked on designing iconic Danish buildings such as the Iceberg, a prize-winning housing project in Aarhus, and Experimentarium, a well-known science center near Copenhagen. At TEDxAarhus 2018 Mikkel shared how he explains abstract architectural ideas through simple hand drawings. He believes that if you can’t tell a story on a single piece of paper, then you are either doing too much or it is too complicated. Interestingly, some of his watercolours have been acquired by the Museum for Architectural Drawing in Berlin.
