Tokyo International Forum Finals (C)
More from the final phase presentation for the Tokyo International Forum discussed in the previous post, and continued in the next three posts.
This post will cover the renderings of the “Exhibit Hall,” a two story space which is adjacent to the Glass Hall, and directly under the ground level Plaza. In the photos above you can see the bridges and stairs leading to it from the Glass Hall main level.

Above, the basic views from the Main Lobby level.

A couple of shots adjusting the final viewpoint.

…and some added tone ideas.
Final line drawing with entourage added by hand.
I could not find any photograph from a similar viewpoint, so this view of the space from the lower level will have to do.
Upper Level view
Above are 6 views generally aimed into the two story exhibition area.
Above are 4 views aimed at the surrounding circulation areas. I added people because the focus was necessarily going to be on the activity rather than the architecture. The last view (with the red “OK”) was chosen because it showed the relation between the exhibition area and the circulation areas.
The final hidden line rendering.
A rough idea of tones and entourage placement.
The final line drawing.
A photo from a similar viewpoint.
I should add a note of excuse in regard to the slap-dash look of the scribbling I did for entourage and tone placement. I was working on a desperately short schedule, and was handing a portion of the hand work off to some of the young architects on the team.
Carlo Zeballos has a very nice post on the Forum with lots of photos, comments and more.
