Hello Ricardo and Nanette,

 Here’s the progress on the drawing. I zoomed in to the main structure to show ‘petals’ and weaving closer as well as the activities that are happening there. I managed to assemble the renders together in photoshop and partially drew the topography. Now starting to add vegetation, background and people. Ill try to finish it soon.

Thanks,

Adelina

Hello Ricardo, Nannette,


Sorry for the delay, I had problems uploading the post
I’ve modelled different types of ‘petals’ according to their position on the structure: the heavier and bigger once are at the bottom with more soil and vegetation; the higher the lighter patches become so that light comes through. I also tried different weaving patterns which add different qualities to the patches as well.
As for the overall composition, I’m rendering the foreground and the background separately to zoom in more to the façade and have other facilities at the background among tree trunks. I’m finishing modelling today and start putting it together in photoshop tomorrow.


Thanks


Adelina

Dear Ricardo, Nannette, and Nicho

Here is the progress on the second drawing.
I’ve been mainly focusing on the model. For the main structure I decided on its materials and rebuilt it so the roof is accessible so that people can pull up the ‘petals’ and soil and assemble the façade. Thus there is also little space just behind the envelope. In C4d I tried to add weaving to the ‘petals’, looks too transparent I think. The ‘petals’ are going to be arranged more diversely later. The plants will be added in photoshop later as well. The person on the stairs is just for reference
Im still designing the path and the market, Iv been sketching it but I will add it to the scene soon. The idea is to elevate the path that connects the structures as the topography changes. Some of the structures would be attached to the trunks with the tree canopy above.
There is missing in the scene: the forest, background and plantations on the foreground.

Thanks,

Adelina

Hi Ricardo and Nannette,
This is the draft of the composition for the second drawing.
The composition shows the part of the growing façade, how the patches are going to be lifted and arranged, how things grow on it and become less dense towards the top allowing light to come through. Here I’m also focusing on the path that leads to the main structure where the procession, food production and market takes place, as well as the connection with the plantation at the bottom part of the drawing. Right behind the architectural part is the reforested zone (I’m still figuring out the best way to show the trees) where different activities will take place (different uses). On the background, there is a village (collaged just for now).
I will now focus more on developing the model further.
Thanks!
Adelina

Hello Ricardo, Nannette,

Heres the development of the drawing

I started putting renders together in photoshop. I was mainly focusing on the disgn development, thats why the forest part is not finished on the current drawing. Some parts have unnesessary shadows that i yet have to clear. As for the facade, i modelled it using loft so it is not as detailed.

Thanks,

Adelina

Hi Ricardo, Nannette,


Heres the development of the drawing
I mainly focused on modelling the main structure. Since the last tutorial, I revised overall dimensions, changed the thickness of the members of the structure and added a ‘cover’ on the façade. The ‘patches’ are hung on the members, but they shouldn’t be separate, so I need to figure out this part, going to try model it differently. I also added structures along the path for lifting the harvest. The scene is still missing the kitchen and market stalls that are also placed along the path. Behind the main structure is tree nursery (highlighted with colour).

Thanks!

Hi Rcardo and Nannette,

Here is some rough drawings of the project, The Cultural HUB

How can a forest planted by a ritual be different from any other forest? To ritualize the process, tree planting takes place at a specific time, has a prescribed pattern, associates with sacred values for being part of the ritual, and is performed with a specific attitude (praying), followed by celebration. As a result, reforestation of the area (fruit trees plantation) begins as part of the ritual (festival) and becomes part of the culture and new tradition creating an emotional connection, and also contributing to the economy.

For the composition I lifted the perspective line to have more ground at the back, to show the forest and its occupation. Here I plan to design a few structures for foresters and the ‘monitoring towers’. Area to the right in front of the main structure is a field, here Im going to show how the extension of the structure is utilized for cassava production and processing. To the left, attached to the main structure, are nurseries and labs for growing seedlings.

The main structure is a carcass with external growing façade. Inside im planning to have a few spaces for cultural interaction, where people gather (communal areas, auditoriums, workshops) to create a collaborative community (between the village and the city). Scholars, artists, foresters, and creative young people can come together to bring their knowledge to the countryside. In exchange, the forest is being monitored for an up to date information that can be accessed anytime.

floating structures
forester’s fecilities

I still need to model all the structure, but im more or less sure on the composition and placement
