Auditorium control room

As we near the end of the construction phase of the virtual Wolfe Center, I have started taking on some fun pieces of architecture in the building. Over the past day or two I’ve been working on the control room and other aspects of the technical level of the main auditorium/theater.

I had already built the stairs that go to the third floor, so I knew how high the control room needed to be. I started by looking at the blueprints of the third floor to get an idea of how big the room should be. Since it is a curved room, I had to construct it out of modified hollow cylinders, which I put a glass texture on. Once I had the main windows put up, I continued the form around to make a railing that went around the rest of the level.

I matched up the floor with the curve of the rail and room by aligning triangular prims with the curve. Once this was complete, I put in the walls that divide the control room from the stairs and elevator.

Once all of the walls and glass panels were in place, I made a dark curtain to block any light from the stairwells and placed this on either side of the control room. I made this a phantom prim so that visitors can walk through it, and also added about a 10% transparency.

Finally, I placed a black black texture on the walls and floors.

Today I am planning to model and add a couple spotlights to the rails, and also make some kind of simple soundboard to put in the control room.

    Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues
    with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
