Architectural award project

Hi everyone I have wanted to share this project for some time. This was a collaboration with Julius Cohen Jewlers in NYC for the Pritzker architectural award. I was fortunate enough to get the commission to do the rendering work for the initial presentation as well as the fabrication of the wooden box. This was modeled and rendered in TC and I believe shows nicely how concept becomes realized. The first shots are the render the last photo's of the finished piece.

There's so much to learn and not much time left to learn it.

Thanks Dave, Don, Brad and Henry, I appreciate the kind words! The work the Jewelers did on this piece really has to be seen to be believed. The box is only 6 in. by 6 in. by 2 in. and the placks and medals were sculpted and engraved by hand, hundreds of hours of incredibly intricate work.

About the only way I could tell the difference between model and actual was depth of field.  Very nicely done.

Thanks Jeff! This model gave me much trouble due to the engraved lettering, The file at one point was unusably large. I ended up converting it to surface and getting rid of all hidden layers and it worked out. I had a lot of fun with the metal materials for the coin and placks.

Best,

Steve

Thanks Andy, Tom and Amanzi!
The wood grain detail is just a matter of finding quality jpegs of wood grain and using st layout for the mapping. make sure the aspect ratio is correct and matches the image you are using. From there just make sure the grain is running in the correct direction. For wood I will often add a material to one facet at a time.
