City Hall Architectural Model

Designed and built the model of a contemporary, forward-thinking city hall. The structure would comprise a multi-purpose green roof to keep indoor temperatures cool and promote healthy behaviors among employees. The building would also feature large panes of glass to communicate to the public the transparency the government strives to achieve. From a bird’s eye view, the city hall resembles two intersecting triangles, symbolizing the desired bipartisanship within government. Fulfilled an assignment for ARTSTUDI 160, “Fundamental Visual Language,” at Stanford University.
