Victoria & Albert Museum, London by 6a architects
The fashion gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum reopens on 19th May 2012 following an extensive refurbishment designed by 6a architects. The gallery will house the fashion collection and temporary exhibitions for the next decade. Gallery 40, or the Octagon Court, is one of the largest and most architecturally distinctive interior spaces at the v&a. Built in 1909 by Aston Webb, the Grade I listed gallery is a vast domed space, with deep arched alcoves carved out of its perimeter. In 1962, the gallery was dramatically reconfigured with the insertion of a steel framed mezzanine, and the original mosaic floor covered over.
Through a careful process of demolition and stripping back, 6a architects has revealed the quality of Webb’s original architecture. The mosaic floor has been painstakingly restored and the original entrances to the gallery reinstated. The 1960s steel frame mezzanine is also celebrated: cut back and infilled to a pure circular geometry, it is wrapped in a new balustrade of slender white steel, and its stiletto-like columns exposed. Three new circular lighting rings are suspended from the original iron roof truss to provide both ambient and flexible exhibition lighting for temporary exhibitions and a terrazzo cylindrical lift makes the mezzanine fully accessible and completes the orbital architecture.

All of the above were things I was asked/told in the past week.
You forgot the “Is that anime?” one.
oh, and “is that you?”
"why does he/she only have one eye?"
OR MY PERSONAL FAVORITE “Why does he look like a girl?”
OR OR OR “Are you drawing porn?”
PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME IF I I WAS DRAWING PORN
my exact responce is “I don’t draw porn in school.”
Batman scares me sometimes…
And then… takes his girl out for ice cream
A relatively adequate fuck-ton of dragon references. (This contains several types of dragons; this is mainly for inspiration in recognizing the flexibility with creating dragons.)
