Detailed information/workflow about the image

Embodying the basics and the relationship between design and education, the FAU-USP has been a testament of Artigas and Cascaldi’s contribution to São Paulo. Beyond merely serving as shelter, it has also taken its part in the city’s sociocultural and urban development.

We have decided to represent it in a sectional perspective to exhibit the interior’s volume – with the atrium as its centerpiece. This is to not only justify its form and function, but also to exhibit how collaboration, spatial continuity, coexistence, and permeability were translated throughout the space. Rendered through 3DS Max, the ‘scale-model', known to be part of an Architect/Student’s conceptualization efforts, was purposely considered to highlight FAU-USP's pedagogical background. Finally, as a finishing touch, the generated image then went through some post-processing through Photoshop for final detailing and image enhancements.
