The last few weeks have been spent designing a new project that will allow me to experiment with some new rendering styles that I have in mind. The past few projects were located in a dense urban setting so I am switching things up and going rural. I decided on an idea that I have been thinking about for a while and the located in a town I grew up in. Deshler is a small village with a population of 1,800 people and sits directly on the intersection two major railways. People from around the country visit the town to watch trains and take in the history of the area.
This new design will be centered on the main street and serve as a way to directly connect the local restaurants and shops with the train viewing activities nearby. The pavilion program will include a hotel, museum, cafe, and several viewing platforms and bridges which will create unique perspectives for observing train traffic.
In terms of illustrations, I will be focusing more on landscape and interiors since I haven’t had a chance to get to either in the past few urban projects. For now, I have attached some simple clay model illustrations of the concept design. All images were rendered in V-Ray using a simple grey material override. Nothing too fancy. I’m excited to continue developing this design and revisit a town I have not been back to in a long time. Stay tuned.
where do you find your design concepts? how do you get inspired? i’m a big fan of you! I’ve been watching your tutorials, they’re helping me a lot with my final project. Congratulations, your blog is amazing!
Nice work. I want to know how did you make the structure system in sketchup because i found out structure elements is hard to model and move.
Thanks for the great effort you are making in writing your posts and reply, caring for spreading your knowledge with us.
this might be silly but i eould appreciate if you could advice me about establishing my own online profissional idintity as an architect. I admire your work and everything you do so am looking up to you as a role-model. I would really appreciate any advice on this matter.
Cool narrative about your hometown. looking forward to following the development of this design.
What render engine you used for this project? great work!
Very cool. did you model the context buildings or find existing buildings and just drop them as appropriate?
hi,i’m a student from china,i have learnt a lot on your website.thank u.
I’m student and I learn so much from you’r site.
Can I ask about the software that you worked for this projection ? my mean is this pictures that you shared !!
Which software did u use for this rendering? it looks awesome.
How did you make the train tracks and sleepers? I’m pulling my hair out doing this in SU with a curved train track. AutoCAD is even worse!
Vey much appreciate your experience with this
