My City Project

While looking to this threads for a while now, i decided to make my own city combined of mostly random architecture out of city planing projects i did for university. The buildings are of differnet detail so i will combine the different models,add new buildings and add some detail if needed.

First some pics of projects that will be included.





















This is what i got so far...

The detail on these is really quite superb! I particularly like the rounded building that has a frame/awning rimming its top (Train Station?).

Yes, at the original project it had an integrated tram station. As the building is situated on the whaterfront now, i'll change that to shops and restaurants.

Here are some other screens

Finaly i had some time for an update...

Finished the school building. It has an elevated yard and shops on street level. Next will either be more detail on the existing waterfront or some new buildings but this may take some time as i am somewhat busy with university.

here are some screens:

I really, really like your designs! All of them! It's like Bauhaus tradition brought to the 21st century.

Wow! That's incredibly professional, the street level detail is so precise and the selective coloring makes renders useless. Reminiscent of LeCorbusier/Niemeyer (post 17 first pic to the left) or even a Bauhaus 3.0

Glad to see you werk!
