This week, @eric-s is going to be modeling the iconic James Corner Field Operations ‘Tongva Park’ located in Santa Monica. Putting on his teaching AND landscape architect hat, Eric will show you how to take on the challenge of modeling, grading, retaining wall, etc.
Organic architecture is fun to model and a good challenge, you should try to do it more often, there are tons of buildings with this style, my favorite one is the Heydar Aliyev Center, probably it won’t be finished in one session but could be a great series of sessions that could become tutorials as well. I have model some organic buildings myself, and my preferred method is doing low poly versions using quads and then subdivide the geometry to get the organic shape.
SketchUp was inspired, choosing the three of you, @TheOnlyAaron, @eric-s and @TysonK, supported by @jody, @matt_robison, @Donovan, …, to do the Lives. All of you do excellently under the pressure of time and the desire to provide SketchUp users with as much information as possible.
Thank you all!
