Creating a short video about just five great buildings is doing this city a massive disservice, as there are many and this is simply my thoughts. I hope you enjoy it. I loved creating it. Creative and Animation: […]

It is immediate to think about the idea proportion, a concept that unties the royal height of an object or of a building of his desires of uprightness. A limited plant, opposite to one strong component in the axis Z guarantees the formalization of a tower though […]
