Ive always admired the design of the Pompidou centre in Paris, particularly the rear elevation which exposes the buildings services. The complexity and mass of the building interest me particularly. I have been after copies of the original elevations for some time but with little success.
So…. I decided to create them myself! Focussing on the rear elevation im trying to create as detailed and accurate a drawing as possible to take up space on a long wall in my house. The image above is a snap shot of where i am at. The image is actually a rendered SketchUp model which i created from my 2D CAD drawing. I am currently drawing up the entire elevation in CAD with the view to model it in sketchUp, remder in maxwell and then finish in Photoshop. Blending the 2D CAD with a 3D render created a crisp image with lots of depth. Its taking me forever but im making progress and confident that it will look great. Ill keep you posted.
