Concept Art: Thistledown

This is another one on Thistledown. I tried to put most of the elements mentioned in the inspiration section into a nice architectural composition.

I think as an advance city, Thistledown is a little more organized. And because of the presence of centrifugal force, its logical for the planning to be nicely patterned and laid.

I thought of the arches that spans up to 10 km to be close to the cap floor, and make up maybe for circulation around the city. There are few of these arranged in an axis from cap to cap.

These arches is connected vertically to the buildings that is hung from the cables. I think it is logical for the buildings to take up the shape of the cables, although the actual diameter of the real cable inside can be much2 smaller and consists of many.

At each end of the arches, a structure rose up to the very limit of the chambers atmosphere and in a shape of a golf tee...this is perhaps possible due to the rotation of the stone.
The peak of this structure can also be landing pads for crafts traveling along the plasma tube.

The foreground 'cable' u see is the middle one of three cables....it is situated in an axis.

The lower city is laid under the arches....all the plazas and beautiful pieces of architecture....

The actual feel of it might not be this dark as the dominant material is white, processed Stone material. This might add bright illumination around the chamber. As the book describes. Adding to the sleek feel of it is its interaction with metallic elements....

I hope i can pull this one of.

The composition might be the one for me.

Comments please!!

Inspired by Greg's clips in the Inspiration section, depth of atmosphere of beelow and MarkyG....

Im not really optimistic about this view, the soft shadow cast is not visible, and the chamber floor needs to be shown.

The cables are the buildings itself. Some will appear hung from it though, to be faithful to the book.

OK moving on...

Ive selected a wider shot of the whole thing. Upper left corner still empty, in case i wanna add anything later... I ve added a structure somewhere at the midground, of Nader Plaza. It won an architectural award in the Eon universe. So i thought it would be grand in scale.

The arches serves as circulation between the slopes...and as a support for the highways...the highways also get suspension from the cables when theres no long span arches.

There are lots of spaces to play with hanging building so stay tuned!

I realised that to show scale, usually the zoom is small....so u have a perception of size. I use 3d to generate the perspective....this chamber of mine has faithful size according to the book.

Its 25km radius and 30km length of the chamber floor.

The temple like structure is Naders Plaza.

The twin tower is a relative scale between Eon universe and ours. Something that i can relate to.

Cheers guys.

Added an overlay of an aerial photo i took over Kuala Lumpur. Luckily its pretty much the angle. I just wanna have some scale that i can relate to, to really understand and make my next step easier.

The previous one s**ks so much i gotta replace it with the clean version...

Gonna work on the hanging mechanism. I thought that maybe the cables should go slimmer?

Just my $0.02c.

Very cool angles and athmosphere, though...

... it seems a little bit empty, by lacking human presence (and touch). After all, the asteroid is what Earth became, not some alien structure. Anyhow, if this is a beginning I like it a lot. It offers a great view, good studied angles and a lot of opportunities of defining and detailing the landscape. Good luck and see more of what you do really soon!

Sean J - Thanks man! Glad u like it!

brrrhmmm - I understand your good intent and really appreciate your effort. But to me, why give everybody in the office a copy of a memo while u can pin it up the notice board for everybody to see?

You dont see the admin do it if they have something to say do we?

u know what i mean?

Sorry but to me its a cheap way getting your post count up. No hard feeling.

black_hand_77 - Yeah man its empty....i dont really know what to fill it with. Im trying to get some from the book perhaps.
