With the removal of the old bridge, additional areas of the port and yard beyond would be exposed and different areas would be visible beyond each of the proposed alternate structure designs. To illustrate these alternatives the artists at POITRA Visual removed the original structure from the
existing photo entirely to create a new base photo ready to receive the proposed designs.
POITRA Visual's 3D modelers used the engineer's concept design plans to create 3D models of each of the structure alternatives, which were then camera matched, lighted, rendered and composited with the new base photograph. The bridge design backgrounds of the POITRA Visual principals greatly expidited this process.
The final Desmond Bridge photosimulations, depicting five structure type alternatives, were used to support the powerpoint presentation made by the proposal team.
POITRA Visual created draft 3D Model drive-through and fly-over animations for pre-visualization (click to view).
