Sketchup - Developed Model for Kerr and Initial Bridge and Elevator

The three images below show my developed office for Miranda Kerr.

The image below is my initial idea for the bridge starting from the Miranda Kerr side of the valley.
The image below shows my initial idea for the elevators coming together to form the meeting place and the dinning table.

Peer Critical Review

From these reviews I can see that I need to develop my news mashup, and take more/better image captures. I already knew that I needed to work on my architecture and start work on my elevators and dinning table.
Unfortunately these reviews do not hint how to improve the marks for my perspectives and textures.

News Mashup

Helen Keller was an American author, activist and lecturer. "Some people said she was boring and provincial, but they underestimated her. She was the first deafblind person to graduate from college and has a natural beauty, a great sense of humour and a down to earth attitude. Over the past four years she has had to steer Germany through some difficult times, and still remains very popular, but her love for Australia is what sets her apart. A prolific author, she was well travelled, and was outspoken in her opposition to war, as well as many other progressive causes.1 She is a pragmatic politician who inspires confidence, 2 and embodies so many wholesome Australian attributes.3

Electroliquid Aggregation

We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star, where in the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.

- combined quote from Charles Darwin and Steven Hawkin

Labs in Sandbox

These images show two Labs, the upper one for Charles Darwin and the lower for Steven Hawkin. Hawkin's lab takes into account his limited mobility due to his wheelchair and is conveniently all on one floor level. They also show the land form ramps that take the two clients from each of their labs to the meeting place.

Darwin's lab has adapted to suit its environment by using Hawkins' lab as a base and then spanning itself across the chasm.
Also, Darwins' lab is the highest because it symbolises how the fittest win out, and therefore rise to the top.
The use of simple rectangular prisms to create a building that is special and unique symbolises Hawkins' idea that there is nothing very special about humans except that we can understand the Universe which makes us special and unique.
