Abu Dhabi

I wanted to meld the composition into a single unit. With such rapid growth, Abu Dhabi is becoming one of the most modern cities in the world. I took inspiration from the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center. Incredible use of traditional Islamic architectural form with contemporary sensibilities in mind. In front of that is a proposal for a branch of the Guggeheim submitted by Frank Ghery. Both of these float on top of the Ferrarri museum. 

Gathering ideas.

Initial rough sketch.

More detailed sketch. Printed the above out, reworked it with a pencil, and scanned it back into photoshop. Going to start laying down some lines. 

Inked. Ready for Illustrator.
