Ok I am a student currently working on my degree piece. Its a mueseum and art college located in the middle of a city in scotland, the site is in the middle of a flood plain and has flood defence incorporated into it. My scheme has a 11 metre high building that is incorporated into the flood defense and is very dense and solid, punching through this solid and snaking its way out into the river is a slender bridge that starts spiralling in upon itself to form a shell like form in the water, that floats and contains a cafe and teh art school, since the water is tidal the building will raise and fall with tide as well as providing an interesting new look on the city (about a page of poncy art words here to describe the aim of this building). However now I am trying to take this floating spiral form the concept model into actual plans I am hitting upon a big problem, how on earth do you model a 3d spiral?????? I got teh 3d spiral lisp command for autocad which doesnt seem to work, and my other fave cad program is bryce and you cant do it in that either. Any ideas or places I could look?? I can provide photos of my models if that would help you to understand it. Many thanks
