New curved perspectives

Earlier this week I spent some time drawing in the Forum building on the Streatham campus at Exeter Uni. This recently completed project has some amazing features including a beautiful curved wooden roof of tessellated triangles.  

I saw part of this roof reflected in a curved glass wall, and was inspired by its transformation; layer upon layer of beautiful curved triangular shapes appeared, along with elegant support structures and reflections of trees and the cafe behind the glass.

While I was drawing the reflections, I was struck by their depth and clarity, and could imagine walking around inside this new alternative world.  I was reminded of some of M.C. Escher's drawings, and of the fan vaulting at King's College Chapel, Cambridge. The artwork I made, shown below, is entitled "Within the forum, within the curves"
