Modeling the SwissRe Victor mardikian and Joseph scherer

Clemson University: School of Architecture Structures 2700: Spring 2017 - Dr. Micheal C. Kleiss PhD

The objective of this exercise was create a detailed model of an existing building from a selection of buildings provided by Professor Kleiss. Joseph and I chose to model the SwissRe Tower due to its simple yet elegant form and its structural nature. This tower was designed by Norman Foster and Ken Shuttleworth, renowned architects from Foster + Partners.

Joseph and I prepare the model for 3D printing.
