uMkumbane Mixed Use

October 17, 2009 1 comment

Final presentation for my current design was yesterday, which means a little more sleep and a whole lot less stress for me.

Stoked!

I’ve got a couple of little changes to make before portfolio at the end of the year, but otherwise I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

The brief called for a Mixed Use building (residential/commercial/offices) in uMkumbane, Cato Manor, which is quite a poor area in Durban. The building was meant to act as something of an acupuncture into the area, a catalyst for further development of a positive urban environment.

It was generally quite a theoretical project, which was super rad! Some theory reports here and here.

And now for some pretty pictures..

My first (design) hand in for this term was yesterday. The project was an art gallery and professional on Florida Road. We were given a little park just opposite Spiga d’Ora as our site and told to use “femininity” as a basis for our concepts. It was a really fun project to do, and I’m pretty stoked with my building.. Presentations on Monday though, so not too sure how my lecturers will react, but crits have been going well..

Anyway.. Here are some pretty pictures.

Project Model Renders

June 10, 2009 2 comments

Here are some renders of that project I was talking about in my last post. They’re drawn up on Archicad, and then rendered with Artlantis, both of which we get for free, as student licensed software, from the good people at Graphisoft..

It always annoys me when I drive past billboards outside new building developments and they’ve got crappy renders, with Photo shopped pictures of generic people and cars stuck on as an after thought with captions like “Artist’s Impression”, which should read “Scarred, Computer-illiterate Intern’s Impression”.. It just looks so bad! And its so easy to do a whole lot better looking stuff. Especially if its on a 2 meter high board facing the street..

Anyway..
