Some general inspiration for Floating cities, I’m mainly looking at how these artists have complied their cities together, connecting both the mega structure of the city with the small components like building and streets. They create a sense of scale based of their surroundings, people on the ground and the clouds, so we’ll need to think of what sort of surrounding our city has, is it simply in the clouds or do we have ground to base it off.
I liked how this artist deconstructed the buildings, so now they are in a sense floating in space, I like how it has a puzzle effect and it’d create some interesting negative spaces.
Leanna shared Nina Lindgren’s “floating City” cardboard model, which is a great example of a low poly style of a city, I think it’s a clever idea of putting a city together. I then for artists that had done something similar and found these examples, I like how they’ve connected them together with pipes and bridges, they’re very simple ideas of repeating patterns but it works effectively.
