06TH & 07TH MARCH 2021

13:00 - 17:00 GMT

14:00 - 18:00 CET | 08:00 - 12:00 ET | 18:30 - 22:30 IST

Workshop Level | Beginner to Intermediate

Day 01 Schedule

Modelling in Maya starts with the manipulation of the commonly known polygon primitives. This initial polygonal modelling is the base for the exercise of this day one: The Starship lowpoly model.

This process involves the use of simple techniques and it results in elegant forms achieved effortlessly between the user and the software own algorithm.

Mariana will go through the basic most important design tools, tricks and techniques she uses daily in her professional life.

In the end of this day you will have the main bodies behind the Starship 3d model.


Day 02 Schedule

On this day, you will be exposed to a more advanced level of 3d modelling workflow in Maya. The Startship Lowpoly model will be our base to upgrade the lowpoly mesh resolution to a higher and more detailed one.

A denser mesh requires a different set of techniques. Mariana will teach you the most common tricks used in Architecture for Façade, Louvers and Mullions. The Startship model will arrive at a new level of refinement and detail after day 2.

The final result will be elegant, spatially rich and formally complex.

Mariana Cabugueira

Zaha Hadid Architects / AADRL

MARIANA CUSTODIO DOS SANTOS is an Architect and Urban Designer from Portugal, recently working at Zaha Hadid Architects and teaching at the Architectural Association in London.

Graduated from the School of Architecture in Lisbon, she moved to London to explore design and technology trough the Postgraduate course: Design Research Laboratory (DRL) at the Architectural Association school (AA). Her research interests gravitate around Generative Design, Parametric Design, Digital Design, Iterative Design, and the evolution of technology through Robotic Fabrication. Her final project proposes a cluster of towers, radically different but biologically similar, in the centre of London. Mariana joined Zaha Hadid Architects after graduating from the AA School. She is part of the Competition cluster ever since, responsible for the High-End design Projects of the Office. She has been involved in many Tower Projects for Asian countries; Cultural Centres and Mosques for Middle East, and till today four Airports, having so far won three of those and still counting.
Maya software is her everyday design tool. She never stopped teaching at the DRL.

Another week another great workshop! I had been trying my way with maya since 2017 since I was introduced to unreal engine. 

Through Mariana's multiple webinars I have learnt so much and still so far to go!

It was really great opportunity learning from the best @Mariana Cabugueira

Thankyou @Mariana Cabugueira for the great class, I was inspired by your model and incorporated elements like the Diagrid pattern that you taught us.
