Developed Logo!!

Finally, the developed logo! The Theme of the 2011 Architectural Student Congress is "sustainable architecture in the developing world," we tried to capture the essence of this theme by presenting Port Elizabeth's wind turbine (as it will be held in P.E.), as a sustainable element impacting the earth with it continually growing roots.

Wind Turbine!!

Driving past the new Coega development one's eye can't help but be drawn to the new wind turbine erected on the opposite side of the N2, this is one of two turbines intended to form part of the renewal energy project, worth nearly R2 billion. The two turbines will generate 70MW of power. May this now green monument be a new step in a a sustainable future.
A definite must see by all Port Elizabeth residents!!!

First Design Project 2011

Here are a few images of our first design project for 2011. We had to design a logo for the Architectural Student Congress taking place in Port Elizabeth this year in May. The main theme this year is sustainability, so i thought my earth logo design would be a sure top runner, but unfortunately it was too detailed :) maybe next time. So i hope you enjoy the few images i have added.
