Project Review: Out Takes PART VIII Universal City Walk Mall 1992

A round two pass for Out Takes with the curved front look final design with wood and bronze accents up front.

The first rougher design sketch for the tubular space frame look that did end up as the final design here.

 This first sketch defined a simple bump curve that was off center on the face of all designs in this category. It utilized a sandwich approach to the materials with a thin strip of wood or bronze showcased in the steel structure.

 Sorry for the lack in posts, I was very ill, but I am up and going today so I have a new post.

In this my eighth posting for the design work that I performed for All Effects back in 92' on the City Walk Out Takes Furniture, Cabinets, and Camera structure designs, I have posted today some added concept designs I did as I worked out the final designs for the main desk that the operator worked from in the public window showcase.

Out-Takes was a blue screen photography studio at Universal's City Walk Outdoor Mall in California back in the late 90's, and the motion cotrol rig was the basis for the final design with the girder framework and matte-black baked finish, but we did experiment in half a dozen directions as todays added sketches show.

The process started with about six looks with a few alternates on each. I then narrowed to two looks the girder, and the "Lexus" we called it with the curved wood sandwich layers as seen in the face ans side of a few designs. They picked the girder as it matched the industrial look of the main equipment that filled the store and it was cheaper to produce as well.

Cheers, THOM
