Last month Archdaily published an article entitled ’42 Sketches, Drawings and Diagrams of Desks and Architecture Workspaces’. Readers from across the world were invited to submit drawings of where they work, ranging from busy office spaces to a small desk in the bedroom.
Amongst the 42 drawings submitted, my illustration of Livraria Lello was featured at number 22. I discovered this beautiful library last year on a university study trip to Porto. It is rumoured that J.K. Rowling used to visit this workspace when writing the legendary Harry Potter series. It does make you wonder whether the rich decorative interior of this space with its grand central staircase influenced the design of Hogwarts!
