Burning a Logo into a City...

This is very much a work in progress post, but we are interested in integrating text/patterns/logos into 3D models of the city. At the moment we are putting a work flow in place to take our CASA logo and burn it into the street patten of a procedural city.

Using the CityEngine, combined with vector files and Lumion/3DMax some interesting results can be obtained, especially if you also build in some physics/particle engine and agent based model capability.

We will have more on this in the coming days....

Update 14th March 2012 - Below is the first second draft movie:

Next stages are to build the city over time, we should have a work flow in place soon...

    Now you should shape the city itself to the logo so on fly-out it has a nice a-ha effect!

  2. Good idea - interlinked radial network cities, could like rather link the Garden City movement, we will give it a go...
