Here is a 3D autumn design for the Architectural Academy competition. The criteria were: storytelling, aesthetics and impact. Furthermore, to increase the chances of winning the design had to have a meaning beyond just the image; perhaps it will bring you to tears, make you laugh, or remind you of something you’d almost forgotten. It also stands out in a crowd, and dares to be different. (EmptyEasel 2013)
Therefore with this quote in mind my intention was to portray an image that tells a story of a young mother and daughter having a deep talk about growing up whilst enjoying the fireworks display overlooking the city. To strengthen the statement I wanted to portray a young family growing up in a neighborhood where vandalism has taken place, in the hope that the design can relate to some people in there real lives. This is also another factor that contributes to making good artwork.
>Overall, It took just over a month to complete with over 100 alterations before I landed on the exact design that felt right. Awesome fun and a massive learning curve.
