Contoured model with interactive back projection
We designed and built this topographical model for display at a Royal Academy of Engineering exhibition. The model had to incorporate an acrylic “sea level” panel suitable for back-projection of computer modelled animations showing currents, tidal flows, sediment deposits, etc. It was a technically demanding project because we had to make sure the back projected animation fitted perfectly within the outline of the coast. The vertical scale was exaggerated to accentuate the distinctive character of the South Wales Valleys.
Six models head off to St Petersburg
Commissioned for a Russian developer, this group of six models all had to be designed to fit into large standard suitcases so they could travel out to St Petersburg as normal luggage. This necessitated choosing a small scale and making the models as sturdy as possible to withstand the rigours of both UK and Russian baggage handlers. The white model is for a proposed Sailing Club and is at 1:750 scale. It also incorporates battery powered LED illumination. The full colour models are at 1:300 scale and show five proposed designs for luxury holiday dachas.
1:20 Model of Information Point
This model was used to help illustrate the proposed design of a new information booth. It had removable security screens and faithful representation of all the material finishes. Even the illumination was a scaled down representation of the proposed lighting system.
1:100 Part Section of School
The model was conceived and built within 9 days and subsequently formed part of a major presentation including 3 illuminated 1:500 site models showing 3 different school designs.
