Animating Office Buildings
Here is a photoset of an office complex (the Mallorn Centre and Royal Bank Pavilion) I built in the 1980s.
I must say (immodestly) that even then we were trying out some animation techniques including:
-adding density by adding a parking deck (at the north end of the site)
-sign, sign everywhere a sign
-adding an atrium cum feature stair cum floating deck to increase what is now called collisionable hours and decrease elevator use and waistlines
-differentiating space–practically no two offices are identical
-adding portals (even lower level spaces have their own “front entries” to the outside, piercing the skin of the building with windows and doors)
-adding underground parking beneath the Royal Bank Pavilion, actually in the setback thereby increasing buildable yield via “virtual” ie, subterranean space
-making second floor walk up offices more valuable by giving them ground floor front doors and skylight lit stairways
-making entrances as easy to identify as doorknobs as you walk or drive by
