So, after we finished making our model (see Architecture Project 2-Temple for Seeing for more on that), our professor wanted us to model it in a different program so we could learn the software. The program she wanted us to use is Revit and it’s really great for making architectural models. It has amazing 3-D capabilities and an easy to use interface for those who are familiar with CAD (so it was basically a breeze for me!).
Despite all of it’s great features, there are still somethings that are difficult in this program (curved and sloped walls, for example), so while we made the Revit model of our designs, our designs actually evolved. If we couldn’t do something in the program, we had to think of a solution that would still capture our idea.
For me, it was impossible to make the stalactites on the ceiling. Instead, there are plates that protrude from the walls to give a similar light effect.
