Stadium SC Freiburg

The jury decision on this two-phase competition was not exactly what we had hoped for – especially since we really liked design and collaboration on this rock’n’roll project. The project was done in Rhino/ Maxwell/ PS. No soccer players and only a few visualizers were harmed during the process… 🙂

Tropical Garden – Rainforest

The Tropical Garden by ZAS Architects/Dubai is a botanical forest environment designed to surprise, educate and delight. Inspired by the pistachio, the tropical indoor forest sits inside adjoining transparent oval glass shells, on a large reflective pond on the mall’s rooftop. Visible from adjacent entertainment areas, dynamic pistachio shapes are mirrored and reflected on the surrounding surface. A contemporary honeycomb glass facade allows sunlight to penetrate into the deepest levels of the botanical garden’s temperature-controlled environment.

Visually unique, the dome’s structural frame represents a growing tree and the natural cycle of life. Verdant and green, the frame shapes the interior forest, with roots growing deep into the earth at lower levels and large leafy tree branches animating and shaping the upper levels. Digital 3D mapping of animals animate surfaces of trees and vegetation throughout.

Elk Valley Brewery

Unusual project based in Oklahoma city. No fancy architectural elements here but the idea is the create the feel of a real life brewery in an imagined space.

I put a lot of emphasis in creating models and realistic textures of equipment that might be found in an actual brewery, based on photographs of their existing workshops. All other elements are modeled and textured based on existing images I could find of similar large interior warehouse spaces. Apart from the unusual large blue portal frames, this really is just a large warehouse with a brewery inside!
