‘Notations’ is a collection of eight beautifully bound and limited edition individual books by Paul Clarke with book design by Peter Maybury. Together they form a folio of drawings, notes, collages, photographs and appropriated images taken from the notebooks of architects who use them as both reflective and reflexive forms of thinking.
It includes a book showing O’Donnell + Tuomey’s working drawings at competition stage for the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre, London School of Economics, completed in 2014.
Based on the principle that notebooks provide unique insights into personal worlds of drawing, this publication offers a set of open notations that can be interpreted and experienced as directly as they were drawn and made: unselfconsciously curious about the world.
