Project Vasari – Station Canopy Roof


Last year we did a competition for a railway station in London as part of the Crossrail development. The designer came up with a rather funky, yet beautiful looking roof for the proposed new station.


Unfortunately we didn’t win the competition, The roof was actually modelled in another application, but I was able to produce it easily in Revit 2010. So I thought I’d show you how to do it in Vasari using an adaptive component family nested into a mass loaded into a project. Hope you enjoy.BTW I don’t normally work this fast!!! :-)

Very nice, but I'm a little disappointed. I was hoping to see how you created the spikey scales on the surface, but you didn't do that part. How about a part 2 where you add that to the surface?? But, despite that, thanks for sharing. Nice demo!

Hey David,

I saw in your video that you made a rendering of your model in Project Vasari. I've tried to find the 'teapot' or render dialog in the 3D-views, but can't find it anywhere in my version of Project Vasari.
Can you help me?

I found how to turn that little black square off around the cursor in Camtasia. I'll send you a screen cap.

Sweet video, i dig the music too :)

Wow!! Poetry... ballet what can I compare it to? I spent about an hour stop starting the youtube video figuring out the steps. But at the end found it much more fun than if you had a slowed down version with narration.

How much did you have to practise or was it on the fly?
