Theatre Podium

Xiao Lin

The idea of my podium is originated from surround theatre, which is an effective way to bring audience immersive feeling when they watch or listen to a performance. To begin with, two basic primitives such as sphere and cube are used to form the initial shape. Then I cut upper half of the sphere and use Boolean command to remove part of it to create the theatre. Moreover, to achieve the function of exhibition in the podium, I calculate the area and use Boolean command again to form the two-floor space. Therefore, a possible route for visitors appears as a result. They may visit the bottom floor to enjoy exhibition or take photos of the scenery surround the podium first, and then go to the upper surround theatre to listen to a speech. This podium not only achieves purpose of aesthetic but fulfills the functionality as well.
