Drawings and descriptions were used to create floor plans, sections and elevations in VectorWorks (MiniCAD). These drawings were imported into Strata 3D Pro (StrataStudioPro) and converted into three-dimensional computer models. The 3D models were animated and saved as QuickTime movies. The Sabbattini thunder animation was created with MacroMedia Director.
