Upon hearing the choice of theme for this challenge, I was excited about all the possibilities and decided I would base my inspiration on computer architecture. After looking at images of motherboards I was less than thrilled with this decision and decided to focus on "De Bijenkorf", the Beehive department store in the Hague, Netherlands. I was enthralled by the unusual stained glass windows and was going to use the mosaic technique to approximate one of the window designs. However, after contemplating how much work that would be, I gave up on that idea. I next considered using the floor plan of our home, which is a rather unique design but also abandoned that inclination.
A family member suggested the Walt Disney Performance Hall in Los Angeles. This would have been a most interesting challenge and lead me to look for various views of the hall, which lead me to an aerial view of the city which resulted in the solution to the challenge.
|Bird's Eye View|
My aerial view is in no way an accurate depiction of downtown Los Angeles, but hopefully it gives the feeling of a bird's eye view of the city. Construction details can be view here.
