San Francisco Quake City, Lebbeus Woods Tribute

lebbeus-sanfrancisco-sabre-small
This 3d art piece was inspired by one of Lebbeus Woods’ drawings, envisioning an organic earthquake-resistant megastructure built in San Francisco. For this I created a 3d model built of dismembered plane, submarine and building parts. I thought the structure would fit in a post-apocalyptic steampunk environment, so I tried to keep the rest of the elements in the image consistent with this concept. This is also the first artwork in which I used an extended golden rectangle for the composition.
The original drawing (see below) was published in Woods’ pamphlet, Radical Reconstruction, which can be found online (only the written part) at this link.
