Denis Andernach, Houses for Landscapes

These beautiful drawings stem from the hands of Denis Andernach. He describes his drawings as “houses for landscapes and landscapes for houses” but it may be hard for the architecturally inclined to pry their eyes away from the fictitious structures that dominate these drawings. Yes, there is context surrounding the structures he precisely renders; landscapes that usually contrast the hard-edged and abrupt angles that we like to build (or draw) with. There’s something a little shedish about many of these drawings that reminds me of the Sea Ranch houses from architects who came out of Princeton in the ’50s: Charles Moore and William Turnbull. A contient away from California, Denis works in Frankenthal Germany, where he imagines these houses, hostels and the¬†occasional¬†ossuary situated in lanscapes that do not exist.
