The Critical Third Dimension
High quality graphic elements are an important aspect of our projects and are an incomparable way to “show, don’t tell” the key elements of the concept in its larger urban context. Our model makers that are adept at crafting the critical third dimension of developments and master plans. They are able to fulfill all aspects of model making utilizing architectural foam for initial sketch model creation to more detailed and articulated presentation quality models, and as necessary detailed digital massing diagrams, shadow studies, CAD renderings, animated fly-throughs and detailed photo realistic or softer watercolour-like computer renderings for major presentations. We regularly prepare shadow studies using advanced 3-D modeling software, which allows us to demonstrate any time, location in the world, and condition of site. Many leading developers have used our services to support their cases during the approvals process.
Our 3d computer modeling is never simply used as a representation tool alone, but rather, it supports our design methodology throughout the master planning process. It is a way for us to seamlessly move through the site and its urban context from street level to bird’s eye view to understand the composition of the existing site, its complex relationships with the wider urban context and to help us generate, test and illustrate urban design options and solutions.
A comprehensive strategy to revitalize Ningbo’s thousand year old historical downtown and to create a vibrant, pedestrian friendly, attractive core of the city.
