It's my blog and I'll do what I want to. How about some vacation pics from Glacier National Park...just the pretty landscape shots!
A modern building has been proposed on South Grand Ave (just down the road from mi casa), by MBR Management Corporation. The facebook hive mind has universally panned the proposal, but I ask the question do people hate the design or hate the rendering? The image is a powerful thing.
I spent 15 minutes photoshopping a screenshot of the proposed design... adding mature trees, adjusting some lighting levels, recropping it, adding some foreground entourage, a atmospheric sky, green grass, saturating the colors, and finally (this is a little designy) adding some pops of color to the balconies.
Would it change your impression of the design? Has the design changed?
Renderings have the power to inform, excite, inspire, and mislead. A good rendering is honest and puts the architecture in its best light.
Just playing around with a historic St. Louis architectural form.
I think I'm going to use this blog as a repository for unfinished thoughts and explorations. Here's the first...
Attended the TechShop Grand Opening this Saturday. Cortex CEO Dennis Lower, Mayor Slay, and Governor Jay Nixon all spoke...a couple pics from the event
Finishing touches...@ 4260 Cortex the inground LED's that uplight the yellow metal panel soffit were installed just in time for the Murmuration Festival!
This was my first look at the completed exterior lighting. It looks great and really gives the building and streetscape a vibrant night-time presence.
