The brief for this model was to produce a display piece, and the material palette reflects this.
We used oak veneer for the landscaping and the building, and the trees are hand made from copper wire. The screens are 3d printed and then hand painted to match the oak.
The architect suggested putting lighting into the building. This was achieved using tiny LEDs and routing the wiring through the building and out of the bottom of the display case to a connector. The connector is for a transformer meaning the building can be powered from a mains socket.
