Visual Thoughts #5

Last VT image: Landscape in Varadero, Cuba.


Matthew Roddis is an urban designer with the City of Vancouver’s Urban Design Studio, involved in a number of community planning and public realm initiatives. He’s a member of the online drawing group,, which endeavors to ‘show the world, one drawing at a time’. In his own studio he explores, creates, and collaborates on a wide range of urban design and placemaking projects, and he gets a kick out of overhearing his kids tell people that he draws for a living.

  1. I cannot think of a better definition of power lines than “visual clutter”. This is obviously not apparent in a carefully drawn sketch – but it is a real issue for photography. North American cities are much worse for this problem than Europe – private wealth, public squalor!
