UNBUILT HELSINKI at the Museum of Finnish Architecture. (Brass Model By Carmen Lee)

PPD Ltd. supplied etched brass to Dutch designer and project manager Willem Heeffer for a exhibit depicting the unbuilt city of Helsinki and it's inhabitants, entitled 'Linnanmaki Roadio Antenna & Observation Tower' brass model (By Carmen Lee).

We are delighted to have permission to show the entire process from the phototool produced by PPD throught to the final exhibit, a process that starts with a simple black and white drawing slowly transforms into an impressive exhibit in the Museum of Finnish Architecture.


The images below show the black and white phototool created from a vector drawing, the brass sheet midway through the etching process and an image showing one of the finished etched sheets.

Next we can see part of the construction process involved in transforming a 2D brass sheet into an imressive 3D structure:

And shown below are images of the final exhibit:
