Leon van Schaik
Lyon Foundation & Lyon Housemuseum, 2013
This new book, published by the Lyon Foundation, presents a collection of ideograms by architect and academic Leon van Schaik. The drawings selected for the book span a period of more than a decade- from 2001 to the present- and have been curated from the Author’s personal collection of over two hundred ideograms created in a series of small notebooks and sketch pads over forty years. The ideograms offer a sampling of van Schaik’s critical speculations, reflections and insights into the often mysterious and elusive world of creative design practice and thinking. Located between the design idea and its realisation, the ideograms explore the conceptual and cultural terrains upon, and in which those involved in design practice think and work.
