Project 1 Update: An Evolving Theme and Style
I do kind of like the city-inside-a-plant idea and perhaps have exidence of industry outside of the flower's limits. I was also intrigued in the idea that - again, Treacy's interest in a building in China - the city was in the heart of a landscape found in Cambodia, China or Vietnam. So I was thinking lush forets, deep blue waters, high mountains and very rugged terrains and generally huge amounts of saturated colour.
I have also talked to other students about giving my city a Chinese name, and right now I am looking into a translation into something along the lines of "valley of a thousand petals". Tumo helped me find a translation for "city of a thousand petals" (which might be closer to a city nickname) which apparently is "Senbonzakura" (Which sounds like "Sen-bon-zah-ku-rah" to me).
