Sant'Elia Revisited

University of Florence Sant'Elia Revisited 2014:
 July 2011

This is a project undertaken by the architecture faculty at the university of Florence. It is part if a CGI requirement of the course which was created by some master's students. The project was to create a 3D model of Sant'Elia's train station sketch [the same building which I am proposing to place on the site at Waverley Station Edinburgh] and create an architectural visualisation as if it had been built and was now 2014. Although it is a nice idea, the model is fairly crude [possibly due to time constraints, i have eamiled the university for more information on the model and the approach] and remains devoid of context making it an interesting exercise but not very nicely executed. It has however helped me envision the sketch in 3D and assisted with creating the 2D CAD drawings and will remain another source to reference throughout the project. It is also nice to know that I am working on a building which is still considered an important architectural idea but that I am trying to do something mote different and dynamic with it.
