Hi Ricardo,

I have a quick question about the my building. I have calculated that the ramps leading upwards will total in lenght of 800 meters. That is at 1:20 angle, is this ok if I make my ramp as an extended floor slab and the programs run of the ramp itself thereby removing the need for individual level floor slabs?

I’ll post the model soon..to make it a bit clearer.

physical model 001

Here is a preview of a quick study trying to break free from the previous ‘efficiency’ of the form. i think its a good start but i want to work on it a bit more technically to get that feel good factor..

I cnt think anymore! these are just some quick models of program extrusions to try and generate something less ‘primitive’ than what i have at the moment. (although i quite like the existing shape) I still think that it needs to be contextually derived, thats what it was about at the begginning! What is best now i think is to rework the ground level integrations as physical models, now that I have some sort of marker point and really start to integrate the different users to create new tectonics! (the black dot represents the black hole at the moment in my final design)

I think its still a little unclear, but this is the first sort of analysis of user intermixing. I hope to get a render out of the voids and circulations that are generated.

This is the development section through the volume to show the farm processes. Hope its a little clearer now?

This is just to illustrate the ‘merging’ of all the programs upwards..

test versions of the program…im now working out a more considered approach to the programs.

Can anyone help me? Im trying to add control vertices to trim the areas highlighted in red. (using Maya)

or if you could tell me how to do it in cinema 4d?
