    River View - New Albany IN

    Some images & walk-through of a proposal we put together for a project in New Albany, IN. I had nothing to do with the music in the video.

    All new construction on 2 levels of parking, mixed use facility with office space, retail and residential. The model itself is just an exterior shell and was rendered using the cloud rendering.

    Prior to this we had done one or two exterior models for presentation but nothing on this scale. This was also enough to get my boss to start transitioning us to Revit for production. It also got us the job :bb:

    Nice work. How long did it take to model that?

      120+ hours.

      However there was a lot of internet searching and forum reading as a part of that time trying to figure out a lot of items like how to create the site and manipulate it to get what we need and design revision since all it started with was a general area plan and one elevation sketch. It could probably be re-done in 3/4 of that time at this point just due to learning curve issues.

      My boss initially wanted to do it in SketchUp which, hindsight being what it is, would have been a nightmare, especially when the contractor and owner started asking for area summaries :laugh:

        Unless a lot of those buildings are the same, just copied around, I don't know that I could do it in a week. That's a lot of modeling. Plus, I spend half my day here. :hide:

          I like the effect you get in the animation seeing thru the transparent masses--very cool. Nice use of "non-photorealism" for a major presentation--which won the job!
          Proves you don't always need to spend all that time and headaches associated with trying to create a"film"--just show the client the "raw" model and don't sugar coat it. Very well done.

            Thanks =) There was no way we could have gotten the existing buildings in even if we just took pictures and applied them to a face. The weather in December sucks for taking pictures. On top of that we only had two or three weeks from the announcement of the RFP to the presentation.

            A lot of the stylistic aspects come from doing a quite a bit of work in SU prior to this. Getting photo-real in SU without external software is a pain so it's generally the exception around here not the rule. Plus it allows focus to be on the concept, not what is near by.

            Most of the facade elements repeat quite a bit and the initial massing was done with a lot of nested groups. Only one or two types of windows and doors. What this doesn't show is the 50 page presentation book that went with it I learned a lot about the software trying to not pull out the little hair I have.
