The City Exhibition was held on the 22nd of April and provided students with an opportunity to show off the models and prezi’s that they had completed for project 2.
I personally was surprised by the standard of work, which was very high. The physical models on display were all of a very high standard and although i only managed to view a few of the prezi’s they too seemed to be very well done.
Some of the more interesting models and those that i found to be particularly intriguing are shown below.
This model and the manner in which it represented the water body within the city was very effective. The model was very well detailed and neatly constructed. The large white object provided an interesting talking point and it is not clearly obvious what it is just from looking at the model.
This model displayed contours, an element that was not very common throughout the exhibition.
The scale and form of buildings within this model was very different to the majority on display. Large skyscrapers and established built forms were not very common within the city models.
I liked this model because of its choice of materials and attention to detail. Unlike most groups who chose to use mdf of card and laser cut their buildings, this model was constructed out of foam core and hand cut! The number of buildings and the consistency that the model is built at is staggering and made it a notable feature of the exhibition.
Our own model of San Pedro de Macoris was also on display at the exhibition, along with our prezi. This is shown in the images below.
