The one unforgettable day…..
An unbelievable strategic tragedy, the one saddest, horrifying and unforgettable day for the America and the world – the September 11.
The World Trade Center which was once the world’s tallest buildings were completely destroyed and vanished into the ground in just hours.
For the sorrow and emotionally attached, our “digilism” are very keen to find out what the replacing buildings would be and how it looks like.
The World Cultural Center, though came in the second place in the competition, our group believed this design should win and deserved to be built through its advance design features and concepts which are true to its place and history. Saying is easier than doing. We will use our team’s collaborative skills, our research, knowledge and with the adding of Crysis software tool to prove that this building deserves to be built, to serve the American and people all over the world.
As its name suggested, the World Cultural Center’s design concept is all about “culture”, the thousands of people from different cultures around the world who had lost their lives and were affected by the tragedy.
To achieve our goal of a completed project, these six factors must be achieved: Architecture (the building itself and its main features), environment (the busy Manhattan site and its surrounding buildings, roads), vegetation (material and texture of the buildings and ground, trees), lighting (time of day, skies and clouds) and interactivity (people and vehicles).
The building itself is the most important part and the most difficult ones to do, not only modeling it but also importing it from 3D Max into Crysis. The main focus of the building is its enormous size and height, it’s steel structure skeletons which represent the twin towers, the Exhibition space, the sky garden and the stairs which will never be used as they were to represents how many people have died on the site.
Each member of our team was assigned on a specific task/s and a time frame to be completed on time. Though different person were focusing and doing different things but we had all tried our best to help one another, giving ideas and advice, encouraging one another. In the end, it’s not an individual task, it’s a collaborative ones. A goal has been set, and we were making our way to working together to achieve that goal for the best outcome we could possibly get. There were 2,750 steps to reach to the top, we were holding hands and have fought all obstacles along the way, now we have reached the top of the building. We are there!
