we demand to be taken seriously

my final project for architecture

For reference, here are a few images of the building so you can see how close I came. It's not spot on, but I feel like I got it pretty close. I couldn't get the front logo to look right, even in Photoshop, so I just left it out. I hope he either doesn't notice, or doesn't count off for it. Same goes for not building the third side. I don't think he'll count off, but who knows.

I'm quite pleased with this. Given that I did basically all of it in about 2 and a half days, and the building is ridiculously tricky even though it might not look like it. I'm not so hot at the layout stuff in Photoshop, but I'm even kind of pleased with how that came out. I know it could be better in the hands of someone who has a better idea of what they're doing, but I don't hate it like I did the last couple assignments I handed in, and I'm even actually somewhat fond of it, so hooray for that.

I had a lot of fun building this in Revit. I really really enjoy using this program, and I really look forward to having a job where I can use it all the time. I hope this is something I get to do down the line. I'm still a bit awkward with it. I make lots of mistakes and I know I do things goofy and I'm sure I make hundreds of amateur mistakes, but I want to learn how to do things the correct way, and then learn how to do them better.

I don't have a handle on materials at all. Concrete doesn't look like concrete, glass doesn't look quite right. It took me an hour of playing with the window material to get it to look like that, and it doesn't look right still. Concrete shouldn't reflect. I know it's me that's doing it wrong, not the program, but I can't figure out what I'm doing yet.
