Fake section

I can't find that one cut which shows the everything magical moment. The structural bracing and roof on the bar of building towards the right is not in place yet, but it looks somwhat acceptable here, since it's supposed to be a peel-away 'section'. Yes?

Question: cover escalators on roof or not

Without the hard-edged lid (Look for the hole towards the center of the image, click on image for larger view).

With the lid.

p.s. roof towards the back is yet to be built.

*Updated structural frame in place

The bracing works with the vertical circulation and holds the scaffold's floor plates. It also contains the back of house for the theater below. Notice how it expands as it gets above the stage area. The top-most thick waffle s the heaviest structural element. It forms the roof and holds/ suspends the bracing. Of course I'll still have to draw in how it touches the floor. However, since most of the site's edges are surrounded by neighboring buildings, it is assumed that it'll merge with their load bearing walls, and so it has to float for now. The solid part of the roof is the outdoor exhibition/ market that links to the museum below. There is an aesthetic problem with covering those escalators that takes one up to the roof. You can see it in the next post of options of covering it up.

Museum Scraps - to be stacked for exploded axo

pink= workshops and lecture hall. The big white dish is theater seating, aka event space

Are the comic lines distracting?

Question: Do you think the overlay line drawings are distracting?
I find the v-ray rendering too flat and cold. Somewhat generic, but nonetheless clear. The ideal case is to be able to extract the lines and make a comic book out of it. Just kidding.

The lower image is for my own reference. One day I will make a line drawing animation.

structural bracing - shall i include in axo?

The bubble frame here is the structural bracing for the market/ workshop floor plates. The plane 'erode' left to right from solid to bubble frame and into smaller market stalls that needs to be photoshoped in. The question is:
1. shall i include it in the exploded axo?
2. are they spaced too far apart to show the erosion effect?

Axo floor plates

Question 1: Which view to explode from?
Question 2: Shall I keep the coloured floor plates? or are they tacky?
Blue = market. Pink = Museum + workshops. Purple in the middle is the event space, shared by both programs.
