Elevators and Dining Table

Mirandah Kerr's Elevator
Mirandah Kerr's elevator was designed with elegance and simplicity in mind to reflect the power she has through her beauty and image within the media. I have re-created the David Jone's logo for Kerr's elevator since it is a label she is heavily related to along with being a starting point of her image in the fashion industry.

Angela Merkel's Elevator
Angela Merkel's elevator was designed in respect to her influential power over the world and the overview she has over it. The elevator is designed to travel down a translucent pipe with rings wrapped around, creating an almost 'ascension-descension' like transition when travelling from her office on the elevator. This creates a facade of her figure while not entirely hiding her presence during the transition.

The Dining Table
This was designed to symbolise nature while also inspired by fashion clothing and modernized architecture help reflect the traits of both clients. The meeting point is designed and positioned in a location surrounded by nature such as tress and vegetation. I felt this helped contrast the images of both women who's both images are exposed to the media and commercialism. Having this serve as the meeting point, it bridges the gap of power between the clients and can also serve as a relaxing getaway change of scenery from the work they are associated with.

Developed Landform

Fully Developed Landform:(Preview of the fully developed landform)
The bridge expands over the valley cliffs and are held up by support beams that connect the land with the bridge.
The structure overlooks the valley and is perched at the highest level of the landform. (Some glitches and errors occured with the elevators within crysis making me unable to modify them)

(Preview standing on the bridge)
The bridge design represents a symbol of influential power within the world having it high above the valley at the highest point, it projects it's influence down upon the world with it's size and scale making it more than noticable. The arches interconnecting and texture chosen symbolise Mirandah Kerr's image portrayed in the media through her elegance and graceful nature that many people would like to model themselves after.
