Castle used for Independent Film

Created by Tobias Dawson
The castle photos were sent by Tobias Dawson. The model should be used in a small independent film. Here's what he had to say about the model:

"I am a production designer with a small independent film company Prometheus Motion Pictures. We are producing a micro-budget film entitled "folklore" that required me to build a small castle for a model Greenscreen panoramic shot. I had a little time and very little budget, and I hunt around online for a product that would allow me a good degree of flexability design and good looks and the capacity of our facility in a short time and budget frameworks.

I decided to give it a try and ordered mussels # 45, # 63, # 70 and # 201. I had a great time designing and building the model itself, which was created during about a month using your blocks and a variety of custom, I made molds. The castle is an exception in two sections, so that it can be modified to a sequence in which it must be first used, then ruinous. I thought that building a model that had removable "good" sections which can be replaced by "rubble" sections would be faster and simpler than the construction of two models.

The material was used plaster of Paris I, stuck with wood glue. As he was not going to be used in any kind of game situation, durability was secondary compared to the cost. I painted with some cheap craft acrylic paint that my friend had on, with and under spray on primer gray. I really have a great time building this thing (in fact, this is my first model stage ...) and since then I have always been tempted to buy more mussels and build more things ... It really is addictive. Very good product! "

Color and Harmony Home

Color and Harmony Home
Understanding Color Harmonies

Color wheel is a simple but effective tool that allows you to create the perfect color combination. Color wheel is divided into 12 parts. These colors are placed in a circle, so that it is easier to see how the combinations can be developed.

The following is the most popular color harmonies:

* Analogous colors are the colors next to each other, the color wheel. These colors work well together when you are looking to limit the contrast and create a calm, serene color combination. These combinations usually include 3 color.
* Complementary colors are directly opposite each other in the color wheel. The complementary combination of only 2 colors, for example, is a red and green. These colors, combined with the most contrast, especially when they are used to their sense of the most vibrant form.
* A Triad is the case where you have chosen the color, and instead used to supplement, when you use the two colors on both sides of complementary color, and the result is a 3-color combination, which is less contrast.

Even if there is more color harmonies other than these three, this will be the most powerful and most frequently used for exterior combinations. The relations to ensure a balance and it is pleasing to the eye. Keep in mind that not all the colors should be used as one, a single color should dominate, or to take a leading role, while others play a supporting role, while retaining the uniqueness of oman.
Warm vs. Cool colors

Colors are divided into warm and cool tones, which is based on their position in the color spectrum. Reds, yellows and oranges make up the warm side of the spectrum, while the blues, purples and greens cover the cooler tones.

Warm colors to bring the excitement. When compared to their responses to cooler, warm colors seem larger, more visible and more easily.

Cool colors are relaxing and comforting. Often, cooler shades used in more northern regions of the country, while warmer colors have become more prominent in the south. This is the result of the quality of the natural light of each region, and colors can be found in each of the natural environment.

By Stephani L. Miller

On 2 May and 3, 2008, Cyclone Nargis roztrhaný across the southern part of the Union of Myanmar (also known as Burma) in Southeast Asia, destroying 95 percent of buildings, killing an estimated 127990 people and displacing more than 2 million people, according to the American Red Cross . In a few days later, the nonprofit Architecture for Humanity activated fundraising efforts to promote volunteer architects, engineers and other experts in the construction industry in-country as reconstruction begins.

In 24 hours, San Francisco-based organization had raised $ 10000, 48 hours after the collection started, the total doubled. "That tells you what is the design community can do when you together," says co-founder and executive director Kate Stohr.

As a follow-up to 12 May 2008, 7.9 earthquake leveled that a large part of the Chinese provinces of Sichuan, the organization calls for architects to help after the construction information, links to such information, and earthquake-resistant design strategies to its open architecture network to support the building of architects and experts on the ground China, the rehabilitation and reconstruction efforts. Post-disaster, these experts often work without immediate access to design libraries and technical resources that most architects working in the office available.

If the local professional resources are insufficient, Architecture for Humanity-supported teams to develop low-cost housing and more community-scale solutions that are regionally and contextually appropriate for the area in crisis-such as destroyed, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes or a grant engineering support for organizations working on reconstruction of communities. In the post-disaster situation in Myanmar, "our main objectives would be to provide architecture and design services in the ways they're most needed," said Stohr.

This means that schools, community rooms, hospitals and civic buildings, which will serve those who need it sectors of society are the first projects targeted. "This is the meat and potatoes of what enables the community to work," he says. "They often can not even begin to do large-scale housing works until you have the community room for meetings and effective delivery of services."

Architecture for Humanity began mobilization project teams, which will be paid their design services and expertise to Myanmar on the rebuilding effort. The body will then reach out to other relief organizations to offer in-country partnerships.

Stohr expects that the organisation of work in Myanmar will be far more complex than previous attempts because the country has concluded the government doors to foreign aid of all, but also other Asian countries.

Architecture for Humanity continue to raise funds to support efforts in Myanmar. Ideally, Stohr said its leadership would like to achieve the same level of involvement is controlled by the post-Katrina efforts, not only to promote professional designers, but the financing of construction work as well. This allows the organization to monitor the work and ensure that structures are built under the project.

The widespread destruction of houses and other buildings in Myanmar from the cyclone and the absolute devastation wrought by the earthquake and aftershocks in China may serve as a wake-are prompted to those governments and others around the world, that buildings should be constructed so as to better deal with extreme weather and geological events.

One way, the average architects can help them resolve their housing for the storm, flood, earthquake zones and the open architecture network (, which is available for those who work on projects of reconstruction in disaster areas around the the world.

Design your own house

Would you like the design of your own home? Actually it is very simple that you think. Since you are going to use your house is quite clear that you have the designs themselves. I am not saying that you need to learn all the technical information about creating drawings and other structures, but you can easily visualize how the shape of your house looks.

Everyone is a dreamer, right? so you can make use of very simple sketches to explain the designer exactly what you want in your house. You can an architect in the design of your house when choosing colors, materials, planning environment as a garden or a patio.

Depending on your preferences / designer can not really the various alternatives of the actual home design plans for you. But to ensure that this happens you must have a very clear idea of you want your house like. You can ask yourself a lot, so that your ideas become clear.

Let us look at some of these factors in detail.

Factors affecting the growth of a house designs.

A good house design is a combination of many factors, such as the function, aesthetics, economy, services and maintenance. If you follow and respect each of these factors it will be easier for the designer to come up with a great house. You can yourself the following questions for the design of a house.

If a homeowner the following questions will have a much greater weight if the draft is concerned.


How many people will use the origin?

How many people in the house were members deserve?

Have you or any of your relatives have a special hobby like gardening. Are you looking for a way to use your own garden to get there?

What is the monthly income of all members combined?

Do you have a pet as a family member?

Do you have a special attraction of a certain form of color schemes? If so, it may be used as a "theme" for your house?

Are you an antique collector? if so, we can use it as an exceptional setting factor for home interiors.

Do you remember a house that you've seen somewhere else where you very much, for example, on your friends or in a movie? This can be used effectively for designing your own house.

And much more ....

You see, all these questions have one thing in common, they talk about you. We have still not on the details of the costs and materials and construction technology yet, because that is not really important. I try to clear your mind about what you want in your interior. Finally, a house has everything to do with your comfort zone, you are going to use. Therefore, much more needed to urinate in yourself and look at your likes and dislikes first. If you write the answers to this question na piece of paper, everything will start falling in the right place. The list of questions and answers that you provide will be a big help to create the final plan of origin.

Do not forget there is only one thing is true.

Home interior design Idea # 1

Just have to look at this 3d presentation of the window treatment. How can a simple window can be converted into an interesting feature of using the "arch" ad to changing the wall texture. In the last plain window, when changing the arched window will increase interest to the whole of the state. The texture of the wall will help to boost the form of the window.

Home interior design Idea # 2

Try adding small and medium-side statues home in selected locations, such as under a staircase or in corners of a living room. You'll need to immediately increase the humane treatment of experience at home and more space for the whole of the room. Depending on what the theme, using your home, you have a lot of choices available.

Here are some recommendations on

Indoor Statue Of A Woman Indoor statue An Archer Silver Finish Woman statue
Patina Lady statue Copper Finish Samurai Warrior Archer Japanese statuette Martial Arts Gorgeous Silver Finish Figural Sexy Woman Statue 21 "

Home interior design Idea # 3

Try changing the flooring pattern of just one room to start and you can see immediately uplift, decorative style. This is due to the fact that the usual eye-level, always grabs the porch of the model have been standing in the normal position. Floors model can be changed by using the carpet to start. The best asia carpets is that you can remove them easily, if you do not like them.

Home Interior Design Idea

Home Interior Design Idea

Each design is at home two parts attached to it, the exteriors and interiors. Both exteriors and interiors are dependent on each other. external appearance of buildings is governed by what is inside the house. For example, if the home has a round plan will be reflected in the interior, as regards the shape of the furniture is concerned.

Best practice is to follow a "theme" proposal for both exteriors and interiors. The home interior can be easily fed through a simple architectural elements.
