Overall Spaces & 5 Final Images.

The overall meeting space has been design simple and open. I have intended to make this space welcoming to new ideas, as the clients both come together. I has also attempted to make this space more professional than the other two spaces, with limiting the bright colours used in Madonna's space, and by making is a single room. This space is designed very simple to demonstrate control, by limiting the colours used (having plain white lights).

Obama's space was intentionally designed as a simple box. There is a sense of confinement and privacy within his power, which i have intended to represent through the box shape, as from the outside you cannot see the inside. The box shape of Obama's space gives a sense of control as everything is contained within this box.

The overall spaces represent the unity and dependance of eachother in order to effectively use power. Madonna's overall space has been design in order to depend on a solid structure. The beams that hold her space up, have been connected to the bridge, thus also forming the meeting space. This dependance represents her need for her fans, because her fame and power are because of them, without them she is no one.

The Textures

For my textures i have used the scalar, linear and rotational. I used the scalar texture in the space where the lift goes. The linear textures i have put into some canvas in the meeting space. And i have use the rotational texture in Obama's bottom space/entrance to his space.

The Table: Final

This table represents hierarchy, as the table is tierd from lower to higher, representing the rise to power.

The Lifts: Final

Madonna's Lift: Madonna lift has been designed simple, so that is doesn't clash with her energetic space. It has also been design to resemble a podium or plateform, which she is familar with due to her performances.

Obama's Lift

The Meeting Space: Final

The meeting space has been designed as a very open space. Which repflects the coming together and welcoming of ideas from both Obama and Madonna. I have used a plain concrete on the walls, roof and floor as i didn't want this space to radiate as much energy as Madonna's space.
The Lift here connecting to Obama's space, is kind of exclusive as their the access to his space is limited, with a barrier coming down.
