Apologies for cross-posting!
Until the end of next week, I?m involved in a project in Refab Space
(Sheffield) called Urban Fabric. It consists of building a collective
maquette of the local Cultural Industries Quarter using cheap
fast-prototyping technologies. More info and some pictures of the work
in progress can be found on urbanfabricsheffield.tumblr.com
For this final round, we will attempt to intensify ?offshoring? the
urban planning, to see what effects it might cause to our model
Sheffield. This means that we are accepting proposals for buildings and
public art projects to be constructed in the area. The proposals will go
through the evaluation of our imaginary city council and, in case they
are deemed relevant and feasible, be integrated to the maquette.
So, if you have any idea of an architectural project of public art piece
that would suit the area, please send along! Just email me
description of it, along with a 3D model in SketchUp, Blender or COLLADA
file formats. Please, keep the model *really* low poly and, if possible,
