‘Drawing on Life’ is a commissioned documentary film (DCAL -Creative Industries funded and in association with the Irish Architecture Foundation) which investigates the studios and inspiration of leading International architects, Illustrators and architectural writers.The film explores a set of research questions related to creative practice: On what sources do these architects draw on for their ideas and inspiration? How and where do they work? What materials or mediums do the use to communicate? How and why do they draw? What does their working studio look like and how does it shape their working practice? This full length documentary sets out to record and document the nature of studio practice through the unique medium and methodology of film.The interviews are with Shane O’Toole, Nigel Peake, Valerie Mulvin, John Tuomey, Michael Doherty -to name only a few and who have all trained as architects but are now working in many different areas and aspects of architecture and design. The film reflects on what shapes individual creative practice and opens this out as a series of interwoven ‘voices’ of contemporary creativity. Shown internationally at a series of film festivals.
