Sant'Elia Comes To London

These are images from the architectural visualisation firm Atkinsen+Co who in 2009 for the 100 year anniversary of the publication of Marinetti's Futurist Manifesto on 20th February 1909 which sparked the movement, created images of Sant'Elia's buildings as if they had been built in London.

This is such a lovely idea and executed well. This really sums up what I am trying to achieve with Waverley and although Atkinsen+Co did not create moving images of it and nor did they use the train station it is the best example of a visualisation of Sant'Elia's work that I have found yet and really like the way they worked in London buses etc.  I think it is interesting because this is another great example of architectural visualisations who like Alex Roman in Third and Seventh also have a strong drive towards photography, suggesting that to make a successful architectural visualisation piece that a knowledge of lighting and material renderings is very important. It also reinforces the impact of the Futurist manifestos and interest in the movement today and suggests at the validity of my proposed project.
