Warsaw Cultural Centre – Urban Scale Model

31 10 2010

The last part of the Warsaw Cultural Centre (WCC)  project was about an urban scale model in 1:1000 scale. Its purpose was to show all crucial relations between the WCC and its direct surrounding. Project site plays important role in the city structure of Warsaw by being transportation and commercial hub. Thus it was necessary to take all this isseus into consideration and measure it by numeric parameters, what was later used for project generation. The picture below presents part of the city,  which would be highly influenced by the project and that is why it was chosen to be finally modelled.

The urban scale model consists of two parts, which vary in terms of its status and a fabrication technique. The first part represents a piece of Warsaw city centre in the form it will look like in the next 3 years, meaning it shows also projects which are now under construction. It was laser cut in many layers and at the end put together.  Warsw Cultural Centre was the second part of the model. The form of the project was created by using 3D printed technique.
