so i had a big project this year, concerning an old and unused bunker in the city of munich. we had to develop a concept for a mixed use, two different functions combined in one building. we could do whatever we wanted, and i decided to fill that thing with water and turn it into a scuba diving center, combined with a night club that involves a glass tunnel that leads through the water. it ended up in having to build a model, of course. it took me four days and nights to complete it, one entire day of that i just spend building that glass tunnel.. my concept was kinda complicated in it's geometry, i had a lot of polygons and stuff so i had to do a super fancy flip-open model.. i guess you can understand why i'm not ready to throw it away yet.. so i thought of something different..
i was in desperate need for some kind of jewellery and makeup organization, so i just filled up that model, wich actually looks a bit like a doll house, with my stuff and it all fits in or on perfectly.. well i'm not that much of a makeup-freak, i got my eyeliner and mascara and i'm ready to go.
here's my tip for all those who don't study design or produce any kind of model at university: the easiest way to create some kind of a minature model is chipboard and wood glue, just build up a fantasy building, cinderella castle or whatever you like, it just may take a bit of time.. or ask me six months from now, i'm sure i'll have some more models leftover for you.. haha.
