hi t74, welcome back. the most i liked among those, you will not believe, it the smallest form of blue and white strips, the best form i liked, but i think only the podium of the depressive brown, maybe a hotel. then 2nd, the white ones, the offices. Middle = Condo ?

put cubes, pyramids, lozangs, spheres all mix together in the mixer in a tower, maybe with a hand coming from the tetraed pyramid surface, from main tower, holding a helicopter port atop, like freedom statue. And in top of those forms put a lighthouse. What do you think? Ah, i forgot, put 2 twins besides connected to the taller one forms with skybridges and on them put 2 windmills, in besides towers or in the skybridges, you choose. The 2 inverted pyramids in main tower form or a cube hold in one pointer goes inside earth in a downstairs waterfall cascade, the ventilation of the garage underground floors, serving as chiller an humidity purify water system from rain. In lower floor in underground has a carpe fish water mirror, cooler. The main tower actually has main entrance with floating circular ramps, coming out from the 10th or 5th storey, for example, embracing an oval podium entrance glassy building in front, where the free arm back hand has a glacial pointer stalagtite in composite pointing down a wind star coordinates pointers N,S,W,E in granite floor, center the top of oval podium entrance building roof, maybe of only 3 or upto 5 floors, something like that. Road is curved around.

I hope this is inspiring you. It is the project i have in mind for future in maybe 300m, 150m, 50m tall... Hope helping you.

yeah, i tried scrsly, but found the software & my abbility did not fit close enough together to make things like that, i was dissappointed. I do not touch Catia 3D anymore, if i had a chance i could do it, like my mega-yacht in my page below. So i know only V5, but too complex to have it at home. For the ones who use 3D Studio Max or Alias, go ahead... Hope see my idea from you, cause you have the SU abbility which i don't. So i transfer my idea to you. And your projects are great, you can do complex forms. Go ahead, be free.

This was i had immagined when i made my comp, hoping having ideas like that... If you do send me the diagram of it...

PS: If you have doubts, we help you here. You know...

I've probably said it before, but I would not mind one bit if architecture moved away from the box and into structural ornamentation, or whatever we shall call your style. Good stuff!

Wow what a monster, like all the bracing and lattice work. For some reason it reminds me of something out of Taiwan.

yeah Mr. T74, really impressive yours as usual.
If you could sometimes repeat the segments not only in 'Y' vertical, but some random "x" mix direction also, would be even greater. Your style is difficult to clean, but tremendous beautiful to be seen. Unfortunate not spread used yet in those shape boring cities we have daily.
Try sometimes also other grad degrees, like segments rotation repeated as well., maybe cleaning some randomly somewhere in the whole final structure. Your futurismus i like.

Your designs fascinate me, the Oxo Tower is beautiful, all of them, just so futuristic.

A lot of creativity goes into these designs, that couldn’t be more evident.
