Thesis Study - 6th Year of Architecture

It is my final year at University and I am working on my thesis project. My chosen thesis is about the impact of sustainable living in an urban environment and how an 'Urban Village' might achieve such a goal as providing food for its occupants.

Follow me on my journey as I complete this project and maybe even win a prize, gain some sort of recognition, or maybe you'll just enjoy looking at the pretty pictures I produce! Either way, I hope you enjoy looking at my work and the comments I have to share.

a few more images.....!

hey guys, here are a few more external and a few internal images of my latest project - the Urban Retreat.

You'll notice quite a difference between these images and ones produced for my 3rd year schemes (The Cinema and Turkish Bath). Here I have tried to use a more 'graphic' representation of spaces etc instead of pristine photo-real renders. Although, I just couldnt help myself with the 'bath/pool' image. The reflections and radiating luminosity is an effect which simply cannot be done with sketches (or at least I cant!).

As part of my personal lust for gorgeous 3D images and (sur)realistic walkthru vids, i just might make one for this project - IF i get the time to. It isnt exactly going to improve my grade/mark for this year and i kind of get the impression that photo-real renders and walkthru vids are frowned upon in post-grad. If anything i'd get shot down for doing one! (my skills have improved quite a bit but i dont want it to look like i'm showing off either!) So i might just make one during the summer - i want to experiment more with 3D matchmoving and tweeking my Vray skills anyway!

Thats it for now.. enjoy! and please leave some comments!
