Recreation: Caerdydd

15 02 2006

Steve’s done a pretty incredible job on the modelling thus far, the athletic club and cinema, needs some work primarily, but overall just a few details are needed before he can send it my way for nightlighting. The huge gap over on the far right hand side is where the BT tower will go, although I made a massive error apparently theres a smaller building connected to the BT tower right at the back that needed to be modelled. Absolutely hideous looking though, something you’d imagine a top-security prison would look like (small windows, steel out front), it’s been named: “The ugly building”, thankfully it’s only small and out of the way. Although why any architect who designed the thing would think such a prisonesque building would look attractive is anyones guess. 😉

/\\/Something familiar eh?

Martin kindly opened a poll on the SCC forums amongst others for people to vote on the next building to be BATted, the choices are the “Pierhead Building” and “The National Assembly” in Cardiff Bay and City Hall in the City Centre *again dreads neo-classical designs*. So you (who ever the hell is reading this can vote there or you can comment here, you dont have to be registered either), I started a little on Cardiff City Hall:

/\ Not much I realise, but then I may have to switch to modelling the pierhead depending on the votes.

In other News:

I need to seriously revise for Welsh, I’m starting to feel myself falling behind abit. Half-term should be alright though, as long as I keep going over it, it’ll sink in. We’ve started learning the whole “mynd” thing, such as “Dw i’n mynd nofio”, “Dw i’n mynd safle bws” etc.. That wasn’t too hard at all. Although I have nothing to compare; I reckon cwrs mynediad aint half bad compared to the older ones. According to the last Welsh Day school I went to in “Brynglas” (Casnewydd), It only came into effect this year. Nice to know I’m a guinea pig =p.

Sometimes I wish Newport wasn’t so shit. Has anyone seen the state of the former art college next to the Usk, by TJ’s? They should never have let that building disintegrate. more shockingly, I was talking to Andrew from work monday, apparently they are going to rip down some buildings near there, ahh well whats a couple of old buildings. I mean Newport council did build a road through an ancient castle, humouresly now that the new distributor road has been built they will be ripping them out. No foresight at all. No wonder I prefer Cardiff better!

*Note to self* Must get drunk on the weekend.
