    which is what, around $1,200..


    ahh,

    i fucking love architecture.. scratch that, i fucking love being paid for what i enjoy doing.. i know there are a few other industry cats on here who can testify to this.. basically, if you can find the right client, (usually corporations) and know your competitive market, do like me; undercut your competition (in this case design/illustration firms) and still rake in bookoo cash, freelance for relatively easy work..



    next post..

    Anidawehi think structurally, the loads of the building are not transfered through the entire wall, just the concrete stanchions..

    oh oh shit.. so this hasnt' been done yet?


    cause I was like, wtf is with the same people in the picture and the cars in the same spots.


    that's pretty cool.


    I hope one day to get paid to receive blowjobs from hot women, I mean, it's a tentative plan, but at least I'd be getting paid for what I love to do.

    that gray building is infinitely ugly, my verdict would have been to tear it down and build ground up

    those concepts look nice man,


    they paid u to think of that though? no offense it looks like a good job, but it seems like its so simple they could of thought of that themselves, am i missing something?

    nobody in the business world wastes their time doing something thats not in their job description.

    usually a large company has a team of architects with it, this company probably didn't have enough resources to finance them full-time.

    They're not deep enough...

    Don't get me wrong, it's an ill concept but you'd have to use cut-outs in order to make it work and cut-outs would look cheap as fuck.

    It also doesn't fit the structure of the building. The glass concept would be beautiful if the building was mostly glass but it's too much of a contrast. But whatever, if they paid you it's not your problem.

    true they're not deep enough, i didn't think anyone would notice that in the pic.. in reality you'd see the back end of them through the glass.. theyre like a meter thick in the real world, it thing would definitely stand up..

    and word, this kind of work IS scarce, but it's there for the taking if you just ask the right questions..
