Wow...nice to see you again here....well just call me Asmilin. I guess we both are not practising landscape architecture anymore but I am right now involved in internet based business and soon gonna be cosmetic and fashion. Yes you are right, we have a lot of beautiful beaches such as Tioman Island, Redang Island, Perhentian Island and etc in the east coast of Malaysia. I have been to Redang only and it is beautiful place to relax. If you on your way to those islands, just text me in email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for the comments. All of these renderings were done in photoshop over sketchup bases and existing photos. People and other objects are placed individually and scaled. The ghosted effects are brought about by adjusting transparencies.
Hi. That sounds like an interesting project. There are some trees that are common in both Kenya and Ethiopia but I will have to confirm which ones from books. Is it too late to help? Some of the common trees in Kenya are Cape chestnut (Calodendrum capense), Nandi flame (Spathodea nilotica), Cassia spectabilis, Floss silk Oak (Chorisia speciosa), Sterculia acerifolius....I can try find out more. Hope that helps.
I do not know how to scale a building based on s.f. or s.m. per child. I think it is something to design by feel. The work I did in Eritrea was not for schools but for community planning and hospitality.
