This is my latest attempt in trying to visually present the life of a typical Power City building, in this case, a side view of Public School 133 where Len and Freddy attend. On the Right is a side view (sliced open) diagram of the school showing various levels, support structures and entrance building as well as track/gym facility that is created out of the crater caused by the building’s former life as a massive, 10 storied high bomb, which is show at the moment of impact on the right. The transformation came about as more and more people make their way to the young city, and the cheapest way to come up with the solutions is to tap into the one thing that is the most abundant: discarded, scattered, dormant, super sized bombs.
Above is a general view of the school entrance from pervious design. I want the school to be slanted and remained that way since it would cost too much to lift it upright, Various class rooms are carved out and added on to the massive metal shell. This is why most of buildings within Power City look like the way they do.
Len and Freddy at their class room
Miss Linnane’s desk, also made out metals from the bomb shells, but I wanted to look intimating, as something an elementary school teacher shouldn’t have to show her unique status.
Finally, the massive Crane Tanks used to build the city, these tanks are converted from Alliance killing machine and pretty much built the entire Power City from scratch, with 4 observation posts on top and 4 on the bottom, this massive machine requires a team of 50 works to operate, but it can lift up a 15 storied high bomb casing without any problems.
Power City under constructions
So I hope this post give you a little more glimpse into Power City during her younger years, like a hidden character, the city grow up along with Len and Freddy, out of debris and scarp metals, a home is made for all.
