Official poster of the next Architecture and Design Film Festival of London, taking place in mid September!
3 years ago I made “Medusa”…I think it’s time to show a bit of it behind the scenes.
Getting some rest of 3d modelling by now and starting to play with plain-colored-not-yet-textured geometry…as you can see, still a long way to go
The U.S. Department of the Treasury…right next to the White House East Wing
Eisenhower’s New Executive Building 3D model finished!
Some close ups of the buildings under construction…
The White House has never been so white….
The White House complex is not as simple as it seems.
Washington D.C. is, topographically speaking, mainly flat. However, there are slight variations in topography, which, in the area of the White House, tend to fall down to the river Potomac in very smooth slopes.
The green areas next to the White House complex are, instead, a bit more tricky. Due to a constant arrival of expansions the whole area has suffered from artificial transformations of the terrain. We can notice all this while we take a walk around the buildings, finding from tiny and curvy hills in the southern lawns to steep slopes in the northern ones… or even sudden changes of level hold by breast walls right next to the central building.
It can seem, by looking at the renderings below, that everything is flat, however, if you pay attention carefully, you will notice all these topographical variations.
First-ever test renderings of the White House grounds….checking for mistakes.
