Pascal studied fine art at Byam Shaw School of Art (Central St. Martins), and architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. As a student, Pascal has won numerous awards including the Bronze Medal Commendation and the Serjeant Award for Excellence in Drawing, and has previously exhibited at the Architecture Biennial Beijing, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and SCI-Arc. He has been a key member of CJ Lim’s Studio 8 Architects, and has worked for leading London practices AHMM Architects and Hawkins Brown Architects.
Pascal’s own work deals with issues of scale, narrative and fiction. Treating his drawings as real places he considers himself a ‘drawing-board traveller’. In an effort to construct real cities and spaces made entirely of graphite on paper, he investigates the seductiveness of miniature worlds such as doll’s houses and bonsai landscapes. In the light of the recent recession, Pascal proposes the construction of miniature architecture as a surrogate for inventive new design in the architectural realm.
