Portfolio

Final portfolio for the end of year.

Embassy Renders

These are a few test renders from the last couple of weeks. The idea is that the organic form looks like an arm reaching down into the cathedral embracing newly formed cyborg citizens, almost as a greeting hand-shake. The arm form is also a nod to prosthetic limbs, whilst the service structure is an overly mechanical form in tribute to those found on launchpads beside space shuttles prior to departure from earth into outer space. This idea of space shuttle, launchpad, service structure can be seen in the organic form image.

The arm houses the various function spaces for the embassy from visa application kiosks, diplomatic and consular office space (threat analysis, security & law enforcement, counter-terrorism, security technology), surgical theatre, post-op recuperation rooms, diplomatic suites, plant, etc.

Thesis

I decided that after spending weeks, months working on the thesis I should probably blog pictures of the final product and also show you my workspace. Depending on how i get on i might publish parts of the final document on issuu.

Embassy – Foyer/Lobby

Here are a few images of the entry level of the Embassy.

Prosthesis level -2

A few more renders of developing the scenes.

Materials & Textures II

Progressing with taking CAD plans into 3ds max. Here’s a few renders for the prosthesis level of the embassy, I’ll be adding more furnishing, etc in the next couple of days. Compared to some renders I’ve done in the past, getting the sort of results i am now is pretty satisfying. Plenty left to do, I’ll keep you updated

Materials & Textures

Continuing to look at internal finishes for the entry level. I switched brickwork for timber and moved the brickwork to the main wall which leads down to the ceremonial area (replacing rough concrete/sheer wall texture). I think the timber as an organic entity alongside man-made concrete could work well within a Cyborg Embassy.

Some of the materialing for the renders isn’t quite right and clearly the upper and lower floors need modelling and adding to the scenes.
The scene’s are also missing furniture – visa application kiosks, helpdesk, security desk, etc. – as well as soft furnishings.

Last Week

These are shots of some work from the last week, predominantly centred around the entry level to the Embassy – working up 2D plans in 3Ds max, playing with possible material finishes and lighting.
